-Alice Childress

 

 The Journey is  an evening of works that speak to the unique and diverse black experiences.  The purpose of The Journey is to highlight Black Playwrights who are contributing creatively to the telling of our stories -those who are continuing to write with urgency in light of and/or in response to the systemic silencing of our voices.  Join us for an intimate evening of story-telling directed by Zhailon Levingston

The Perspective:  A Celebration and Award Ceremony Highlight Black Excellence from the 2017 Season

 

 

 

In 2017 we got to hear so many beautiful untold stories, and see African Americans represented onstage in new, exciting ways. The Perspective wraps up Black History Month with a celebration of the past year’s milestones in African-American Theatre. We hope this event will remind us that anything is possible and leave us inspired to continue to create change in the industry. We'll be spotlighting groundbreaking moments,  productions  from the past year along with people who have been consistently creating change in our industry (The Lion King’s 20th Anniversary, The Founders of Broadway Serves, National Black Theatre and more). We’ll be honoring the casts and creative teams with special performances and awards. Champagne toast!
