“Choir Boy”

Nicholas L. Ashe, Wallace Smith, Grantham Coleman, Kyle Beltran, and Jeremy Pope in "Choir Boy" at MTC's Studio at Stage II at New York City Center

Jeremy Pope and Wallace Smith discuss their roles in “Choir Boy,” a new play with gospel music. Pharus (played by Jeremy Pope) wants nothing more than to take his rightful place as leader of the Charles R. Drew Prep School for Boys’ legendary gospel choir, but can he find his way at the institution if he sings in his own key? “Choir Boy” is playing at Manhattan Theatre Club through August 11.
