New Heritage Theatre Groupthe oldest Black nonprofit theater company in New York City, originated in 1964 under the name New Heritage Repertory Theatre by the late Roger Furman, a revered playwright, director, actor and lecturer, who began his career in the 1940s with the American Negro Theatre in Harlem. The mission was to preserve and institutionalize classic works of Black theatre.

 

 In 1983, Voza Rivers, an award-winning music and theatre producer took over the company and reorganized under the name New Heritage Theatre Group (NHTG). Voza expanded the mission to provide training, experience, and international exposure to veteran and emerging artists. New Heritage Theatre Group presentations reflect the historical, social and political experiences of African and Latino descendants in America and abroad.

 

In 1997, Jamal Joseph, an award-winning writer, director, documentary filmmaker, and educator, became the Executive Artistic Director. Katsuya (Kats) Abe, International Producer, joined New Heritage Theatre Group in 1987 and co-produced numerous events in the United States and abroad, including Jazz for Peace, International Piano Festival with People for Disabilities and many others.
