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

Initially I was a little put off during the introduction when we were told the dialog would be in verse, and with the odd minimal industrial looking staging for the 1640's setting. But once the hip/punk styled cast was revealed and dialogue delivery being comedic and engaging, it was all surprisingly perfect, as were the performers in their roles. Really enjoyable and refreshingly different!
