Black Nativity

Telling the story of the first Christmas through music, poetry, and dance, Langston Hughes’s Black Nativity has become an annual tradition at churches and theaters across the country since its off-Broadway debut half a century ago. Earnest joy and solemn reverence mingle from the very opening, when the choir files into the darkened auditorium, bearing candles and singing “Go Tell It on the Mountain.” Arranged by age and vocal range, the singers belt out gospel-style carols, as well as some original songs, both as a group and as soloists, accompanying a narrator who spins the story of Jesus’ birth. Mary and Joseph are mute throughout the piece, but the depth of their emotion resonates through the exuberance of the choir, backed by African drums. The evening of rejoicing concludes much as it began, as the cast reprises “Go Tell It on the Mountain” on their way out of the theater and into the world.

Harold Washington Cultural Center
