Theater Alliance presents Black Nativity by Langston Hughes, a concert version
This retelling of the Christmas story from an Afro-centric perspective is infused with rich gospel, blues, funk, jazz, and dance with griot-style story telling from an ensemble cast. Embracing the spirit of the source Langston Hughes work, Black Nativity serves as a deep exploration of cultural identity, pride, and unity within the African-American community while also bringing a fresh voice to this holiday classic. Winner of three Helen Hayes Awards (Best Ensemble, Best Musical Direction, and Best Musical), this spirited evening will delight the whole family.
