Drew Prep School for Boys, which for a half a century has been dedicated to the education of strong, ethical black men. One talented student has been waiting for years to take his rightful place as the leader of the school’s legendary gospel choir. But can he make his way through the hallowed halls of this institution if he sings in his own key?The play arrives on Broadway five years after an acclaimed 2013 off-off-Broadway production, also directed by Cullman, at City Center Stage II. The Broadway mounting is led by original stars Jeremy Pope as Pharus, Tony winner Chuck Cooper as Headmaster Marrow and Tony nominee Austin Pendleton as Mr. Pendleton.The cast also includes Nicholas L. Ashe, Daniel Bellomy, Jonathan Burke, Gerald Caesar, John Clay III, Caleb Eberhardt, Marcus Gladney and J. Quinton Johnson.To celebrate opening night, Broadway.com Resident Artist Justin “Squigs” Robertson sketched a portrait featuring Pope’s Pharus singing out among his schoolmates and rising above adversity.

He was born and raised in Oregon, lived in Los Angeles for quite a long time and now calls New York City his home. Related Shows Show Closed This production ended its run on March 10, 2019 Choir Boy

“WE CONTINUE TO INVEST IN WEST AFRICA” Representing Monjasa, Group CEO, Anders Østergaard, Bunker Trader, Gustavo Ferreira da Costa, Senior Bunker Trader Area Specialist West Africa, Michael Qvist Pedersen and Operations Manager, Ken Hüüdma all took part in the event. To support the new office location, the Monjasa owned 5,815-dwt tanker, African Chaser (to be renamed Monjasa Chaser), is now deployed as fixed tanker in Angolan territorial waters. “The West Africa bunker market has developed very positively over the past 10-15 years and today matches bunker destinations like Las Palmas or South Africa. As an example, we are currently making IMO 2020 compliant fuel timely available across the region and we have just completed the first supplies in the Gulf of Guinea. Author: Baibhav Mishra In Angola, local representation is a key enabler for further developing our services, and now we get to show our commitment in Luanda and emphasise personal relations even further. We will continue to invest in West Africa for the benefit of our partners, the local communities and Monjasa,” says Group CEO, Anders Østergaard. For the past almost five years, our General Manager, Eduardo Costa, has been working as Monjasa’s Luanda-based representative. With his Angolan-Portuguese background and in-depth local knowledge, he has already done a promising job and will continue to lead developments in Angola. Sea News, November 11 LOCAL LEADERSHIP AND LOCAL TANKER The West Africa bunker market has developed very positively over the past 10-15 years and today matches bunker destinations like Las Palmas or South Africa SUCCESSFUL OPENING RECEPTION On 31 October 2019, Hotel Trópico was scene for the official opening reception in Luanda. Our guests represented national and international oil and shipping companies as well as local partners and friends of the house. The evening was a great opportunity to learn more about our partners’ needs and we are very thankful for this warm welcome. Monjasa is currently enabling the IMO 2020 transition by making new low-sulphur marine fuel available across the region. Today, Monjasa is the leading supplier in West Africa measured on volume and a fleet of 10 tankers deployed in the region. Monjasa started supplying bunkers across West Africa in 2009 and since then, we have delivered a total of 10.6 million tonnes of fuel products across the region from the Gulf of Guinea to Namibia. Monjasa on Friday announced the opening of its office in Luanda, Angola, to support our extensive West Africa oil and shipping activities.
