From the Academy Award-winning writer of Moonlight, comes this exhilarating story about Pharus, a young, gay student leading the gospel choir at his elite, all-boys prep school. Can a rigid institution that prides itself on producing “strong, ethical black men” contain Pharus, who is a quiet rebel at his core? Or can Pharus inspire the very nature of the school to shift forever? Identity and community clash in this Tony-nominated hit. Filled with rousing music and soul-stirring dance, this play rejoices in all that it means to march to your own drum.

Tarell Alvin McCraney, the Oscar-winning screenwriter for Moonlight and recipient of the MacArthur Fellowship Grant made his Broadway debut with this production helmed by Trip Cullman (Murder Ballad).

Choir Boy will run April 4-7, 2024  at Liddy Doenges Theatre, Tulsa Performing Arts Center.  Performances are at 8pm on April 4th, 5th, 6th, and 7th, and 2pm on April 6th and 7th. There will be a special talk back after the 2pm matinees on April 6th and 7th.
