Our 2017-2018 Season opens on September 15, 2017, featuring:

Caroline or Change, Seven Guitars, Black Nativity, Lines in the Dust, and Marie & Rosetta.

 

 

LINES IN THE DUST

by Nikkole Salter

February 9 – 25, 2018

When Denitra loses the charter school lottery for her daughter, she must find

another way to escape from their underperforming neighborhood school.

The answer seems like a risk well worth taking but may end up requiring a

bigger sacrifice than she ever could have imagined. It’s been exactly 60

years since Brown Versus the Board of Education. Lines in The Dust

questions how far we’ve come and more importantly, where we go from here.

 

 

MARIE AND ROSETTA

by George Brant

April 6 – 22, 2018

BUY TICKETS

Bringing fierce guitar playing and swing to gospel music, Sister Rosetta

 Tharpe was a legend in her time and a huge influence on Ray Charles Jimi

 Hendrix, Elvis Presley and Johnny Cash among others who all knew “you

 don’t have to be religious to know when you’re in the presence of glory”

Marie and Rosetta chronicles her first rehearsal with a young protégée,

 Marie Knight, as they prepare to embark on a tour that would establish them

 as one of the great duos in musical history. Theirs is the rare story that

centers on the intimacy of the inner lives of black women and not world

 politics or degradation.

[*]  Black Theatre Troupe 2016-2017 Season                   

#############################################

 

http://new-wp.blacktheatretroupe.org/

 

BLACK NATIVITY

by Langston Hughes

December 2 – 18, 2016

Last season’s sold-out, legendary holiday event by Harlem Renaissance poet Langston Hughes,

returns to the BTT stage in a stunning new production.  Black Nativity is without a doubt a theatrical

 wonderment. A joyous company of singers, actors, dancers and musicians delivers its powerful

 message of joy, hope, victory and liberation. This song-play touches a special chord in the hearts of all

at a very special time of the year.

 

BROKE-OLOGY

by Nathan Louis Jackson

February 10-26, 2017

The King family has weathered life’s hardships, surviving with their love for each other intact. William

 King lives in the house his two sons grew up in. He’s alone, but he maintains his allegiance with their

mother in his own private way. As illness takes its toll on his body, the brothers are called home to take

 care of him and immediately find themselves at a crossroads. The older son having escaped the poverty

 and their neighborhood has just finished grad school but returns to town to help take care of his father.

The younger brother has remained at home but now must face the reality of his dead-end restaurant job.

Broke-ology is a moving exploration of how time and circumstance — and the hard fact of poverty —

 can diminish hope, divide loving siblings and threaten to extinguish life itself.

 

THE SCOTTSBORO BOYS

Book by David Thompson;

Music by John Kander;

Lyrics by Fred Ebb

April 5 – 23, 2017

Tickets on sale February 2017.

Set in 1933 the legend of the Scottsboro Boys has been realized as a poignant and powerful musical.

The Black Theatre Troupe and Phoenix Theatre join forces to present this powerful story of racial

injustice that even today demands that its voice be heard.

Before the Central Park Five, Rubin “Hurricane” Carter and The Black Panther’s, Geronimo Pratt there

were the Scottsboro Boys.  No other crime in American history – let alone a crime that never occurred –

is seen as the landmark set of legal cases stemming from racism that set legal precedent for every

citizen to have the right to a fair trial-a fitting and enduring legacy for these nine young Black men.

Nine lives that mattered.

[*]  13TH Film: The 13th Amendment                               Now                           

#############################################

13TH is a 2016 American documentary by director Ava DuVernay.

Centered on race in the United States criminal justice system, the film is titled after the Thirteenth

 Amendment to the United States Constitution which theoretically outlawed slavery.

DuVernay's documentary argues that slavery is being perpetuated, however,

through mass incarceration.

 

13TH has garnered acclaim from film critics.

 

The full Thirteenth Amendment reads as follows: "Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude,

except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall

exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction."
