A Joyful Gospel Christmas Celebration

Experience this Gospel retelling of the Nativity through high energy music and extraordinary dance. Acclaimed poet Langston Hughes creates a unique theatrical experience by using dialogue, narration, gospel songs, and folk spirituals to celebrate cultural traditions and the birth of the Christ Child. Originally premiering in 1961, it was one of the first plays Off-Broadway written by an African American and has been presented around the world over the last 60 years. Honor the season with this joyous holiday celebration.
