Choir Boy

by Tarell Alvin McCraney

January 24 – February 22, 2015

Synopsis

When a young man is named leader of the celebrated gospel choir at the Charles R. Drew Prep School for African-American Boys, the sweet harmonies of classical spirituals contrast with the bristling tensions that arise. A music-filled story of masculinity, tradition, coming of age and speaking your truth.
