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

It was a rare pleasure to see such a wonderful, creative production especially made for children. The actors were lively, they managed to actively involve the audience. The costumes were exceptionally well done, just very basic additions to their black outfits. There was music and dancing, hand puppets, shadow puppets, an impressive giant puppet, a live parrot, and even an informative question and answer session at the end. Bravo to all who were responsible for putting this show together.
Conceived and directed by Perry Daniel. Curated by Professor Patricia Harter.
Tall Tales is best suited for 5 to 11 year olds, but children of other ages are welcome and may appreciate it as well. The show is not recommended for toddlers/infants age 18 months or younger.
