You can get your “BLACK PLAY” fix on right here. See list and links to Black plays and theatre on BlackBoston.com. Used to be no small feat to get Boston African Americans into a seat on theater row for performances. But more shows are going up and it is pulling attendance.

Black plays outlook
FEB 17-20 at ARTSEMERSON – Octavia Butler’s Parable of the Sower
FEB 23-27 at ARTSEMERSON – Dreaming ZenZile, Soma KaKoma
We think Black movies and Black Plays have Black/African American executive producers, playwriters, and lead actors. Not all live stage theatre is on “Boston’s Broadway” block.
“The IPHIGENIA” world premiere opera show with Wayne Shorter & Eperanza Spalding was fantastic. It ran for two days at Arts Emerson. Here is more info. https://artsemerson.org/events/iphigenia/
