Tarell Alvin McCraney, the Oscar-winning screenwriter of Moonlight, debuts his highly anticipated Broadway show, Choir Boy opening January 8th. Drawn from McCraney’s own upbringing, Choir Boy tackles themes of Black masculinity, homophobia, respectability, and young love, while delivering powerhouse performances of gospel music, spirituals and step-dancing. When Manhattan Theatre Club first premiered this musical-play hybrid Off-Broadway in 2013, it garnered near unanimous praise and a coveted spot on the New York Times Critic’s Pick list. Once again directed by Trip Cullman (Murder Ballad) and starring the supremely talented Jeremy Pope, the Broadway run is sure to impress!

Synopsis:

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?
