Encore Presentation

With brutal honesty and raw physicality, Word Becomes Flesh is a series of letters from a young man to his unborn son. The award-winning team returns to Theater Alliance for this encore production that uses hip-hop, dance, and music to explore what it means to be a black man in the 21st century. First presented during Season 13, this highly praised production received 5 Helen Hayes Awards, including Outstanding Production of a Play, Outstanding Director, and Outstanding Ensemble.

Word Becomes Flesh is part of the Word Becomes Action Festival, a series presenting new works by local artists, community-based workshops, and conversations that explore and articulate the diversity of the African Diaspora. Theater Alliance will partner with local nonprofits to provide resources to transform words into tangible actions that make real change!
