New York, NY (BlackNews.com) -- Award-winning production, “Black Angels Over Tuskegee” premieres off-Broadway at St. Luke's Theater featuring The Black Gents of Hollywood. The historic drama, written and directed by Layon Gray, premieres in an open-ended run January 29th following a successful Los Angeles preview.

“This story really inspires us to see how dreams and determination work together. I've witnessed audience members laughing hysterically and then sobbing solemnly. It is a perfect vehicle to educate, entertain, inspire and add perspective to a rarely heard chapter in American history and I'm so glad to share it with New York,” says Playwright Layon Gray.

“Black Angels Over Tuskegee" has been an official selection of the 2007 and 2009 National Black Theater Festival and recently won the 2009 NAACP Award for Best Ensemble, as well as the 2009 Artistic Director Achievement Award for Best Play.
