Review: CHOIR BOY at Steppenwolf Theatre Company Photo Review: CHOIR BOY at Steppenwolf Theatre Company
by Rachel Weinberg - Jun 27, 2022

What did our critic think?With direction by Kent Gash, Steppenwolf‚Äôs staging of CHOIR BOY hits all the right notes. Steppenwolf ensemble member Tarell Alvin McCraney‚Äôs play is is a heartwrenching and tuneful story about Pharus‚ÄĒ a young gay Black man who relishes nothing more than his role as the choir lead at the prestigious Charles R. Drew Prep School for Boys. Over the course of the play, Pharus navigates that classic adolescent tension between his desire to be fully himself and his wish to be accepted among his peers. McCraney‚Äôs script beautifully demonstrates this push-and-pull in a way that will universally resonate with audiences, but the story is also incredibly specific to Pharus and his classmates.
