Black Nativity Now - 2010 - Off-Broadway

$47.50-$67.50

BLACK NATIVITY NOW is a gospel musical for our time and for all people. Set inside a fabulous show-biz church in the midst of the famed and scabrous landscape of Times Square, BLACK NATIVITY NOW tells the story of the birth of Christ. This setting provides a colorful world of seekers, hustlers, and lost souls, providing the perfect jump off for an evening of exuberant music and dance that celebrates humanity’s need for hope and grace.



Presided over by a pastor heavily influenced by the likes of James Brown and supported by a choir of singer/dancers who perform musical sets infused with gospel, pop, funk, and soul, BLACK NATIVITY NOW is the universal journey of our search for salvation and “peace on earth.”
