Great Theatrical Productions! – National Black Theatre (NBT) has some great productions and plays. Just saw "The Shaneequa Chronicles- The Making of A Black Woman." Awesome! It's playing until October 10th. Go to their website for further information.

A historic institute for African-American dramatic arts enriches the heart of Harlem. – The Background
Located on the dividing line between East and West Harlem, NBT was founded in 1968 by Dr. Barbara Ann Teer, thereby becoming the country's first revenue-generating black theater arts complex. The 64,000-square-foot interior, rich with colorful African artwork and decor, bursts with warmth and a deep sense of cultural pride.

The Details
NBT's spaces host all manner of performances--musical and dramatic--as well as lectures, workshops and dance classes. The splendid Liberation Temple on the third floor is an octagonal-shaped room with an intimate feel and seats 272. (The Temple is accompanied by a cozy reception area with ample amenities.) The smaller Performing Space on the second floor is a charmingly ramshackle 150-seat theater with an elevated stage and excellent visibility.
