The Harlem Repertory Theatre is an award-winning, minority-owned, and operated theater committed to producing, artistically and intellectually challenging productions that explore the experiences of a diverse range of ethnic, social, and cultural communities. Moreover, the HRT stages new works and established classic musicals and plays from bold and innovative perspectives that will challenge and/or reflect the Harlem community's cultural and social values.
Critical themes of race, class, and politics will often be addressed in our productions as we hope to inspire, entertain and educate our audiences through the diverse repertory of popular and obscure plays and musicals that we stage each season. The HRT staff is committed to offering first-rate and affordable theatrical performances to the greater Tri-State area.
In conclusion, The HRT is committed to fulfilling Langston Hughes’ 1938 vision for a professional theatre in Harlem:
"...On the opening night... a beaming Langston renew(ed) his promise of a
Harlem repertory theatre: 'We want to build a theatre for you folks, a theatre for
which you may write, in which you may act. This is your theatre.' "
Langston Hughes April 21, 1938
It is our hope to begin to realize this dream of a Harlem Repertory Theatre that the remarkable Langston Hughes had for the Harlem Community. Please help us make Mr. Hughes’ dream and ours a reality by supporting the Harlem Repertory Theatre.
