BLACK NATIVITY: A Gospel Christmas Musical Experience

Black Nativity is an African-American telling of the Nativity story, based on the Song Play written by acclaimed African-American poet and playwright Langston Hughes. The show opens in a modern day African-American church on Christmas day, filled with testifying deacons, sanctified ladies, and down-home preaching and ultimately recreates the journey of Mary and Joseph, resplendent in African costumes, to Bethlehem, accompanied by a rousing repertoire of old-fashioned spirituals. The African-American viewpoint and the gospel music make Black Nativity a truly unique and entertaining theatrical experience.
