Official Description

2019 Tony Award Nominee for Best Play! From Tarrell Alvin McCraney, the Oscar-winning screenwriter of Moonlight, comes this powerful coming-of-age story, which soars on the harmonies of live gospel, spiritual, and R&B performances. For fifty years, the elite Charles R. Drew Prep School has been dedicated to the education of strong, ethical black men; its legendary gospel choir an emblem of all it holds true. But for Pharus Young, the opportunity to take his rightful place as the leader of these talented vocalists comes at a price. Can he still earn his place in these hallowed halls and sing in his own key?
