Black Nativity

Rated 3.0

Harlem Renaissance poet Langston Hughes’ holiday musical is less of a play and more of a mash-up of a church Christmas pageant and a gospel choir jam. This is the second year that Celebration Arts has produced this seasonal performance, and its delivers with gorgeous African-influenced costumes, dances and songs. Thu 8pm, Fri 8pm, Sat 8pm, Sun 2pm; Through 12/22; $10-$20; Celebration Arts, 2727 B St.; (916) 455-2787; P.R.
