Atlanta's Alliance Theatr presents the premiere of CHOIR BOY

CHOIR BOY tells the story of Pharus, a young gay man struggling through his final year of high school at a prestigious boarding school for African American men.  He is the target of bullying and teasing from his peers, but also earns the admiration and respect of fellow members of the school’s celebrated choir.  Pharus’s confidence, charisma, clarity of purpose, and talent hide the struggle he endures at school.  The choir is where Pharus can stand out and be different without fear – because he’s the best.  CHOIR BOY is a stunning new play with moving gospel music. 

CHOIR BOY opened in New York's Manhattan Theatre Club earlier this month to outstanding reviews and was hailed by  The New York Times as “vivid, magnetic, and moving,” and New York Magazine described it as “gorgeously sung and staged.”  The New York production was extended twice due to popular demand and closed August 11.  

CHOIR BOY will run on the Hertz Stage at the Alliance Theatre September 20 – October 13, 2013.  Opening night is Wednesday, September 25, 2013.
