Back by popular demand, 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.

"This isn’t just a feel-good show, this is also a show for those who feel the pain of loss keenly this time of year, and it offers a balm for what ails us.” – Broadway World
