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
Quotes & Highlights
Fresh from the San Francisco SketchFest, The Tribute returns to The Steve Allen Theatre for TWO NIGHTS ONLY!
“It’s Better to Be Dead and Remembered than Alive and Forgotten.”
Starring and written by Tracy De Nisi, Crissy Guerrero, Laura Milligan, & Pinky Turzo
Co-written/directed by Dave Foley
Co-directed by Steve Hibbert
Choreographed by Linda Kostalik
Written by and starring Tracy De Nisi (White Trash Wins Lotto), Crissy Guerrero (White Trash…, El Vez, La Posada Magica), Laura Milligan (White Trash…, Waiting for Studio 54), Pinky Turzo (Guadaloop, El Vez) and written by Dave Foley (Kids in The Hall, Newsradio, Celebrity Poker Showdown), The Tribute takes a comedic, ascerbic look at four forgotten former bandmates whose lives fell apart when lead singer and tabloid bad girl from their 1980’s girl band, Sparkle, went solo.
After the Diva’s recent, and, sadly, not at all surprising demise, the four women are reunited after 15 years to perform a tribute show in her honor. Weaving in standards and musical theater songs, the soaring vocals and lush harmonies will almost make you forget that the four women are only here hoping for one last pathetic chance at fame.
The Tribute is co-directed by Dave Foley and Stephen Hibbert (who directed the Groundlings’ most recent and well-received show, and who also directs the show’s video pieces), and choreographed by Linda Kostalik (La Posada Magica). The four singers are supported by a three piece combo, including Gere Fennelly, Mark Rivers and Willie Bongiovanni.
