Celebrating joy, hope, victory and liberation through Langston Hughes' celebrated music play

Why See Black Nativity?

Back for 2017

Langston Hughes' heartwarming gospel play returns for the 2017 holiday season at the Paramount Theater, celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ through the uplifting genre of gospel music. Produced and performed by the National Center of Afro-American Artists, it celebrates the black community and wider Boston during this holy season. Follow the star to Bethlehem in this modern staging of Hughes' original musical, and rejoice in the good news that this show brings for a community often on the outskirts, rather like a certain baby 2,000 years ago....

This two-act musical was written over 50 years ago by the Harlem Renaissance poet Hughes, first performed in 1970 and was originally set in biblical era Bethlehem. Co-Musical Directors Milton Wright and Marilyn Andry's innovative new staging fast forwards the action to the modern era whilst keeping intact the relevant themes of neighbourly love, community collaboration, activism and leadership within our community. In a year that has tested many people's faith's this uplifting production sets out to restore hope and faith in the season of goodwill, and to spread the Good News of the Lord Jesus Christ.
