For half a century, the Charles R. Drew Prep School for Boys has been dedicated to the education of strong, ethical black men. One talented student has been waiting for years to take his rightful place as the leader of the legendary gospel choir. But can he make his way through the hallowed halls of this institution if he sings in his own key? On its US debut at MTC’s Studio at Stage II, The New York Times called the play “vivid, magnetic and moving,” and The New York Post hailed it as “bracing and provocative.” Now, we’re thrilled to bring this soaring music-filled work to Broadway. Playwright Tarell Alvin McCraney is an Oscar®-winning screenwriter of Moonlightand a recipient of the MacArthur Fellowship Grant. Directing is Trip Cullman (Murder Ballad).
Join other WBGO Members for an evening featuring the broadway debut of Choir Boy. This music filled work tells the story of boys becoming men, truth becoming a trial and one singer finding his voice. You don't want to miss it.
