by Langston Hughes

Legendary poet Langston Hughes takes us on a powerful journey from ancient Africa to post-Katrina New Orleans in Black Nativity. This exhilarating musical, which first stormed Broadway 50 years ago, is reimagined on our stage through African and contemporary dance, gospel favorites, and storytelling at its finest. Our performers team up with local choirs to serenade you in this American classic for the whole family.

In loving memory, we at Theatre Horizon are dedicating our production of Black Nativity to Diana Millner.
