Following a sold-out run in 2015 on the Apollos intimate 140 seat Soundstage, the Classical Theatre of Harlem moves to the Apollos 1,500 seat Mainstage theater with this dynamic and moving musical, destined to become a family holiday favorite. The First Noel follows three generations of a Harlem family affected by the tragic loss of a loved one, when an unexpected visit reveals some long-absent Christmas joy. It is a story 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. Jason Michael Webb (Motown: The Musical, Violet) and Lelund Durond Thompson (founder, YellaFella Entertainment and CTH Artistic Associate) along with director Steve H. Broadnax, III lead the artistic team.
