What is Choir Boy about?
The Charles R. Drew Prep School for Boys is preparing for its 50th Anniversary. It's the kind of establishment that hews close to tradition, so when Pharus, a gay student who has been socially shunned by his peers, is selected to lead the school's choir, it causes a stir. Once Pharus' detractors embark on a hate campaign against him, the headmaster brings in renowned historian Mr. Pendleton to dampen the tension.
Choir Boy is now playing at the Samuel J. Friedman Theatre through to February 24.
