Taken from a series of letters from a single father to his unborn son, Word Becomes Flesh examines masculinity and responsibility within the constructs of hip-hop culture. This searing performance received five Helen Hayes awards including Outstanding Play, Outstanding Director, Outstanding Ensemble, Outstanding Supporting Actor, and Outstanding Lighting Designer.

Recommended for adults ages 18 and older; younger audience members must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. This performance runs 1 hour and will be followed by a Post Show Conversation with the artists.


Word gives voice to frustrations, but also dreams. The questioning spirit and synchronized energy of its performance are particularly galvanizing” – The Washington Post
