Mechanics Hall and the National Center of Afro-American Artists are pleased to present the Worcester premiere of Langston Hughes’ Black Nativity! A 50-year Boston tradition, this remarkable holiday experience is a gospel telling of the Christmas story of hope and peace for people of goodwill. Black Nativity is a highly energetic song-play narrated in Black vernacular speech and featuring drama, dance, and African drumming. Prepare to be swept away by the joy-filled cast of children, men, and women lifting their voices in song.
