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.
