“Black Nativity” is directed by Jacqueline Moscou and choreographed by Kabby Mitchell III, with music direction by pastor Patrinell Wright. Wright also leads the company, which includes the Rev. Joseph E. Connor, G. To’mas Jones and Phyllis C. Yasutake as narrators; Bojohn Diciple as Joseph and Pamela Yasutake as Mary; members of the Total Experience Gospel Choir and Black Nativity Choir and an onstage band.
