Broadway stars Natasha Yvette Williams (Some Like It Hot), Q. Smith (Come From Away) and Will Man (Hadestown National Touring Company) will take part in “Making Space on the Great White Way: An Homage to Black Trailblazers of Theater & Performance” on Sunday, February 19, at 12:15pm at Marble Collegiate Church. They will pay tribute to the Black actors, composers and playwrights who have made countless contributions to Broadway’s signature style and aesthetic, yet for many years, were not given the opportunity to perform on America’s premiere stage. It’s free and will also be streamed online.
Then on Sunday, February 26, the Marble Community Gospel Choir will perform “classic Negro Spirituals to high-energy, feel-good anthems,” according to Rev. Rashad McPherson.
