Black to Broadway

The goal of Black to Broadway is to inspire deeper engagement with, awareness of, and access to Broadway for all Black people. Created by The Broadway League in 2019, and originally called Let’s Do Broadway, this initiative is an industry-wide celebration of the Black community on Broadway—on stage, in the audience, behind the scenes, and as leaders in the Broadway community.

Black to Broadway – It’s “Play” Time was a panel event that took place on September 18 at the Curtain Up! Celebration in Duffy Square.  As Broadway performances resumed following the global pandemic and social reckoning that have taken place over the past 18 months, no less than seven new productions of plays by Black opened fall of 2021—including four by Black women. In this entertaining and informative live conversation we got to know some of the writers, directors, and performers who are bringing these works to Broadway stages. Participants (pictured above left-to-right) included playwrights Antoinette Chinonye Nwandu (Pass Over), Keenan Scott II (Thoughts of a Colored Man), Lynn Nottage (Clyde’s) and Douglas Lyons (Chicken and Biscuits). Harriette Cole (pictured above at right), the nationally renowned lifestylist, and branding coach and Dreamleapers founder, moderated the event.
