May 14, 2020: This event has been canceled due to COVID-19.

Pharus doesn’t fit in at The Charles R. Drew Prep School for Boys. Despite embodying the strong, ethical morals the school seeks to ingrain in its black students, being gay has made him an outsider within its hallowed halls. But this year, his talent and perseverance have paid off with a chance to lead the prestigious choir, a position where he may finally shake the dogged bullying by his fellow classmates.

Featuring gorgeous gospel music, you’ll want to raise your voice and cheer as one student boldly stands up to the those that seek to silence him. This soaring coming-of-age drama was the Broadway debut of Oscar-winning screenwriter Tarell Alvin McCraney (Moonlight), whose deeply human storytelling illuminates the chaotic collision of race, masculinity and sexuality on the path to adulthood.
