2017/2018 Broadway In The Hood Series


Broadway in the H.O.O.D is honored to announce the stellar lineup for our third season of locally produced Broadway productions at the beautiful Smith Center for the Performing Arts. Our “Resilience Personified” season is a dedication to those great pioneers who paved the way for Broadway in The H.O.O.D, and will serve as a testament to creating diverse, quality productions for the entire family.

We are ecstatic to kick off the 2017-2018 season with Broadway in the H.O.O.D’s very first benefit concert, “From Broadway with Love: Honoring The Shoulders We Stand On!” featuring local, national and international headliners, as well as Broadway performers from all over the world.

The fun continues with “Disney's The Jungle Book KIDS.” This classic for the young — and the young at heart — is a beautiful story of loyalty, courage, honor, persistence and integrity, brought to life on stage.

Lorraine Hansberry's “A Raisin in the Sun,” the heart-wrenching, three-time Tony winning play that changed American theater forever, makes its Smith Center debut in January 2018.

Broadway in The H.O.O.D is elated to wrap up our season with the incomparable music of eight-time Grammy winner Luther Vandross in “Remembering Luther: The Night I Fell In Love,” starring Abraham McDonald, winner of Oprah Winfrey’s nationwide singing competition “Karaoke Challenge.”

Join us for our "Resilience Personified" season!
