Black History Month is almost over, but there’s still time to recognize. Las Vegas-based Broadway in the Hood, founded by Torrey Russell to help get kids off the streets and into the theater, stages Terrance Afer-Anderson’s Hiram & Nettie as part of Gospel Fest February 24 and 25 at Black Mountain Recreation Center. The musical centers around two slaves in 1820s Georgia. Gospel Fest ends with a gospel music performance Saturday night. Tickets are recommended.
Also, on February 25 and 26, the College of Southern Nevada (Cheyenne Campus) stages Lorraine Hansberry’s A Raisin in the Sun, the story of a poor black family dealing with a substantial insurance windfall. The performance is part of CSN’s 4th annual Hands Across the Arts Benefit.
