We love Meshell Ndegeocello and are so thrilled for her new multidisplinary theatrical work “Can I Get a Witness?” Commissioned by Harlem Stage, this exciting piece draws inspiration from the James Baldwin quote, “From my point of view, no label, no slogan, no party, no skin color, and indeed no religion is more important than the human being.” It also is inspired by Baldwin’s work The Fire Next Time.
Meshell stays on the cutting-edge of creativity & challenging societal norms, and this timely project will surely hold true to this tremendous value. It’s time for church – let’s go!
Can I Get a Witness? runs December 7th through the 11th at Harlem Stage. Save the date, and get your tickets!

About World in the City: Chinese Sword Play
The use of weaponry in Chinese dance, theater and martial arts is rooted in ancient warfare. The beauty, strength and grace of these movements are now displayed only on theatrical stages and for exercise. Bringing together key New York teachers, performers and practitioners, “Chinese Sword Play” showcases the techniques of sabre swords used in dance, tai chi, wushu and Chinese opera. Part performance and part dialogue/discussion, this program brings these four distinct traditions on one stage, giving audiences and artists a rare opportunity to closely compare and contrast these refined forms.

About The First Noel
After losing her mother around Christmas, Noel decides to return to Harlem and sell her childhood home. When she steps back inside the brownstone, the spirits of her family that passed before her begin to speak, making her decision to sell even more difficult than she anticipated. The First Noel is a memory musical that flashes us back to Harlem in 1985 and follows the story of a Noel as a child and her desire for Christmas in a house where holiday joy has been unwelcome for years. Her parents struggle to recover from the death of their first child until an unexpected visitor turns things upside-down and brings three generations of the family together just in time for Christmas. The First Noel delivers the Christmas spirit to audiences with the sound of today blended with the holiday nostalgia of yesterday, creating Harlem’s answer to the perennial Holiday classic.
