Making Space on the Great White Way: An Homage to Black Trailblazers of Theater and Performance

American Musical Theater owes a debt to actors, composers, and playwrights of the Black diaspora who have influenced its style and aesthetic at every stage of its evolution. Yet, Black performers were not given serious opportunities on America’s premier stage until 1917, though many of them were well-known across the country. At this Racial Justice event, through dialogue and performance, we pay tribute to Black trailblazers who have opened doors for multiple generations of Black talent. Our special guests include Natasha Yvette Williams (Some Like It Hot), Q. Smith (Come From Away), Will Mann (National Touring Cast of Hadestown), and Eric Lockley (The Inheritance).

This will be an event you don’t want to miss.
