*At the Charles R. Drew Prep School for Boys, a young black man knows what is expected of him. Work hard, fall in line and if you’ve got the voice for it, use it to praise God in the school choir. Within these walls, Pharus Young (with the voice of an angel and a keen mind) should be a star. But in the face of Drew’s time-honored traditions, can music overcome silence?

The Geffen Playhouse is now home to award-winning playwright Tarell Alvin McCraney’s “Choir Boy,a show that navigates expectation, alienation and the overwhelming desire to be heard.
