RESTON - Recipient of five Helen Hayes Awards for professional theater excellence in the Washington, D.C. area, including for Outstanding Play and Outstanding Director, the critically acclaimed Theatre Alliance production of “Word Becomes Flesh” is coming to Reston’s CenterStage. It will be the Virginia premiere of the very singular show.

“I have seen this award-winning production twice and have been stunned by the performances of these five actors,” said Paul Douglas Michnewicz, director, arts and events, Reston Community Center. “Theater Alliance continues its tradition of bringing the most advanced of theatrical performances to Reston's CenterStage."

Written by spoken-word poet and playwright Marc Bamuthi Joseph and directed by Psalmayene 24, “Word Becomes Flesh” was developed from a series of letters written from a single father to his yet unborn son. “Word Becomes Flesh” examines masculinity and responsibility for a father-to-be within the constructs of hip-hop culture.

“‘Word Becomes Flesh’ is a unique production that gives a strong, rich voice to those who may have been unheard in the past; or for those whom there have been only accepted stereotypes in the past,” said award-winning director Psalmayene 24.
