Cincinnati Black Theatre Company’s production of "Black Nativity" is a one-of-a-kind Christmas story that you don’t want to miss!

"Black Nativity" originated in 1961 and was first performed off-Broadway by Langston Hughes. Since then, many adaptions have surfaced, including a 2013 film starring Forest Whitaker, Angela Bassett and Mary J. Blige.

CBTC’s modified celebration of the birth of Jesus is more than just another Christmas production. It is an illustrious story — a joyful expression of one of the Bible’s most prevailing narratives that took place in Bethlehem over 2,000 years ago. This family-friendly production is filled with impactful sounds of music, praise and worship, song and dance, bursts of energetic, astounding costuming and prophetic storytelling.
