Last night we attended a Black Rep performance of Black Nativity at Harris-Stowe University’s Emerson Theater here in St Louis.

Blck NtvtyBlack Nativity is an explosion of Christmas.  Sacred and profane.  And how that cast can sing!  They’ve got a great set of pipes.

The first act tells the story of Mary and Joseph.  The second act mixes Christian and American popular song to evoke memories, wistfulness and pure joy.

Performances run through Sunday.Blck Ntvty 2
