REVIEWS

Tarell Alvin McCraney is an incredibly gifted writer. He penned the Oscar winning screenplay for “Moonlight”. And now with “Choir Boy” he flexes his theatrical muscle proving himself to be an equally talented playwright...... McCraney’s soulful writing brings to mind the great August Wilson. With "Choir Boy" he establishes himself as a major new voice in the theatre. CONTINUE READING THE NY 1 REVIEW
“Choir Boy” forces us to think about the human potential that continues to be lost through oppression and insistence on conformity.

The play is an undercover, and gorgeous, a cappella musical, kept aloft by the extraordinary vocal talents of its cast CONTINUE READING THE VULTURE REVIEW
