Choir Boy ReadingPhoto of Choir Boy

Musical Theatre major Bernell Lassai organized a reading of Tarell Alvin McCraney's play Choir Boy. Participating in the reading were, from left to right, Myke Thompson, Maalik Shakoor, Jarris Williams, Marcus Nikos, Bernell Lassai, St. Louis actor Jerome Davis and faculty member Gary Glasgow. Set in a boy's boarding school, the student members of the choir struggle with questions of personal identity and the challenges facing them as they become men.
