Head of Passes

Mark Taper Forum
135 North Grand Ave. Los Angeles

Tony winner Phylicia Rashad gives a powerful performance in MacArthur "Genius Grant" recipient Tarell Alvin McCraney's acclaimed drama Head of Passes. Set in the mysterious shifting marshlands at the mouth of the Mississippi River, this modern-day parable inspired by the Book of Job finds Shelah's family and friends planning a surprise birthday party for her, but a dark family secret threatens to ruin everything. McCraney, who recently won an Oscar for adapting his own play into the film Moonlight, has been called "without question, the hottest young playwright in America" (Chicago Tribune). Find out why as this stirring drama comes to Mark Taper Forum from Center Theatre Group.

Los Angeles Times - Recommended

"...The production, which opened Sunday at the Mark Taper Forum under the direction of Tina Landau, is both towering and teetering. Rashad, reprising her performance that wowed audiences at New York's Public Theater, is a theatrical force to be reckoned with and the answered prayer of McCraney's drama, which, like the storm-lashed house in which the play is set, has some structural vulnerabilities."

Stage and Cinema - Highly Recommended

"...I will remember Phylicia Rashad's performance in Head of Passes until the day I die. She is an emotional hurricane, often still, even funny-while in the eye of the storm-but then raging and howling with a pain rooted so deeply inside the love and bondage of family and faith, that you can't breathe. Sometimes, neither can she."
