Black Nativity by Langston Hughes is a retelling of the classic Nativity story set to gospel music.
The show was originally first performed off-Broadway on December 11, 1961 and the first play written by an African American to be staged there. Traditional holiday carols are sung in gospel style with a few additional songs selected for the show. This powerful holiday musical will appeal to everyone regardless of their cultural backgrounds.
