Choir Boy

The title "Choir Boy" above a group of young black men, three of whom have their hands held in prayer around a cross of golden light.

“Captivating and fresh.” –The New York Times

From the Academy Award-winning writer of Moonlight, comes this exhilarating story about Pharus, a young, gay student leading the gospel choir at his elite, all-boys prep school. Can a rigid institution that prides itself on producing “strong, ethical black men” contain Pharus, who is a quiet rebel at his core? Or can Pharus inspire the very nature of the school to shift forever? Identity and community clash in this Tony-nominated hit. Filled with rousing music and soul-stirring dance, this play rejoices in all that it means to march to your own drum.

Choir Boy ascends and its choirboys achieve, as long as the notes hold, what feels like freedom.” –The Guardian
