Tarell Alvin McCraney's latest acclaimed play tracks the coming-of-age of a group of talented young African-American prep-school singers whose choral prowess is woven seamlessly into the story. Pharus, the undisputed superstar of the choir, is searching for the courage to let his true self shine through, in this work by MacArthur Fellowship-winner McCraney (The Brother/Sister Plays), who's been called "without question, the hottest young playwright in America" (Chicago Tribune). The West Coast premiere reunites director Trip Cullman, star Jeremy Pope and several other cast members from its 2013 New York run. Learn More

Written by Mariann Aalda & Iona Morris
Directed by Penny Johnson Jerald
Musical Director/Arranger-Composer: Munyungo Jackson
A recovering empty-nester after “her-kids-went-off-to-college-and-her-husband-flew-the-coop,” Ginger Peechee-Keane, (Mariann Aalda) and her younger, but more worldly, “never-been-married-but-kissed-by quite-a-lot-of-men,” sister, Sonia Peechee, (Iona Morris) have had very different life experiences. Now at mid-life, they have enthusiastically joined forces to become the “Tony Robbins(es)” of mature sexuality by creating the Multiple Orgasm Initiative for Sexual Transformation (M.O.I.S.T.).
Billed by its writer-performers, Iona Morris and Mariann Aalda as a sex-istential comedy, “MOIST!” is a lyrical, comical, musical, frequently literal, sometimes philosophical — and at one point, even hysterical — telling of a woman’s sexual cravings, wants and needs from the first-blush of teen-age awakening to the experiences that lead to becoming a confident, sexual sage.
