The First Noel: A World Premiere Musical With The Classical Theatre Of Harlem

The holidays seem to be the most wonderful time of the year. Theatre is booming with tourists from all over the world and this year the Classical Theatre of Harlem is bringing something fresh to the holiday season.  A new musical, The First Noel  as part of their 15th anniversary Season. This world premiere holiday musical from composer/lyricist Jason Michael Webb (Brooklyn Tabernacle, Broadway’s Motown the Musical, Violet) and writer/lyricist Lelund Durond Thompson (founder, YellaFella Entertainment and CTH Artistic Associate), has been in development for two years. “The First Noel will use music that crosses genres — from disco to rock to gospel — to tell a universal story of love and belonging,” says Artistic Director Ty Jones.

The First Noel follows three generations of a Harlem family affected by the tragic loss of a loved one. Time is slow to heal this family’s wounds until an unexpected visit from Grandma reveals some long-absent Christmas joy. This story is about how a community is healed, one family at a time, as everyday people do extraordinary things to help one another receive the gift of love at Christmas time.

Performance dates and location will be announced at a later date. Visit for more information.
