Black No More is a musical adaptation of George S. Schuyler’s satirical Harlem Renaissance-era novel. Dr. Junius Crookman promotes a mysterious machine that promises to remove the burden of race from any person of color — by turning them white. This powerful and provocative new musical is an examination of race, identity and the very nature of love.

Black No More brings together Oscar-winning screenwriter John Ridley (12 Years a Slave), Grammy winner Tarik Trotter (aka Black Thought, The Roots), Tony-winning choreographer Bill T. Jones and The New Group’s Artistic Director Scott Elliott.

Originally announced and slated for Fall 2020, Black No More will premiere when The New Group returns to the stage!
