"I think it DOES cover new topics, though - the specificities of a young black man’s experience coming of age and coming to terms with his sexuality - in a specifically black environment - haven’t been seen on Broadway before. (I can’t think of any other examples but I will happily stand corrected.) There are specific manifestations of homophobia/ hyper masculinity within African American culture that were poignant and sad to see portrayed so accurately and with such fine writing."

I completely agree, based on the Off-Broadway production, and I'm very surprised to hear (or read) anyone say otherwise.
