Harlem Repertory Theatre

Led by Keith Lee Grant, Founding Artistic Director, The Harlem Repertory Theater is committed to producing artistically, intellectually challenging productions exploring the experiences of a diverse range of ethnic, social and cultural issues facing the community. Staging new work, classic musicals and plays with innovative perspectives, the theatre challenges and reflects Harlem’s community and its cultural and social values.

Dreamgirls

Often addressing cultural themes of race, class and politics, the Theater’s desire is to inspire, entertain and educate their audiences, offering affordable theatrical performances to the greater Tri-state area – and often, their admissions range from a ten dollar suggested donation to simply asking their patrons to “pay what you can.”

The Harlem Repertory Theater remains committed to building on Langston Hughes’ vision for a professional theatre when he said in 1938: “We want to build a theater for you folks, a theater for which you may write, in which you may act. This is your future.”

Finian’s Rainbow

Their current season includes “A Raisin in the Sun” and “In the Heights. “Among their past productions include: “West Side Story,” “Tambourines to Glory,” “The Wiz,” “Finian’s Rainbow & Flahooley,” “For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide when the Rainbow is Enuf,” “Dreamgirls,” “Ain’t Misbehavin,” “As You Like It,” “Bye Bye Birdie,” “Dutchman,” “Once on This Island,” “Cabaret,” “Hair,” and “Vodu.”

Ain’t Misbehavin’



"It is a law of life that man cannot live for himself alone. Extreme individualism is insanity. The world's problems are also our personal problems. Health is achieved through maintaining our personal truth in a balanced relation of love to the rest of the world. No expression is more emblematic of this relation than the creative act which we call art. No art by its very constitution typifies the social nature of that creative act more than the theatre. The theatre, to be fully understood and appreciated, must be seen as a manifestation of this process of interchange between society and the individual. It must be judged as a continuous development of groups of individuals within society, a development which becomes richer, acquires greater force and value as it grows with the society in which it originates. Only in this way can the theatre nourish us.  - Harold Clurman
