This time of year is one of traditions, and, in the world of theater, we associate our favorite classics with certain performing groups. Ten years ago, the N.C. Black Repertory Company joined the holiday lineup by introducing Black Nativity. The musical will open Friday night at the Arts Council Theatre.
“It’s a wonderful piece that never grows old,” said Mabel Robinson, who directs and choreographs the show and is the artistic director of Black Rep. “Langston Hughes’ poetry lends itself to humor, and the gospel music reaches many people. There’s something for everyone — black and white, young and old.”
