Theater Alliance is thrilled to bring this award-winning Christmas classic back to the Anacostia Playhouse. Langston Hughes chronicles and celebrates the birth of Jesus, while also celebrating the birth of Blackness. This classic story told through gospel, blues, funk, jazz, and dance asks you to look inward and find the wonder in life. 

Appropriate for all ages. This performance features haze and strobing lights.
