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

The acting was very good. However, the play itself was thoroughly depressing. The three permutations of the final solution seemed all equally bleak: Joint suicide, one partner's suicide, leaving the other partner behind or the reverse. Add the trials and tribulations of aging to the mix (beginning Alzheimers, incontinence, cancer) and things are completely black. It is not a well balanced play. There could have been a better relationship with the daughter, maybe the joy of grandchildren, any positive aspect of a life well lived. G.H.
