A Nonprofit Cabaret Venue

Ain’t no party like an HBCU party, cus an HBCU party just don’t stop! Directed and produced by Howard University Campus Royalty and alum, HBCUs In Love showcases love songs pulled directly from the musical theatre canon as well as pop songs by Beyoncé, John Legend, and Jazmine Sullivan. This concert brings forth a new crowd to the NYC theatre cabaret concert scene, allowing for Historically Black College and University students and alumni to showcase their love for theatre in a night of deep adoration and laughter. Enjoy the ride as they take audience members on a journey through songs such as “Love On Top” by Beyoncé, “What About Love” from The Color Purple and many more. You don’t wanna miss this! Co-produced by Da’Quan Cooney, Cecily Dionne Davis (Fiona in Shrek national tour, Black Girls Do Theater), Amiah McGinty, and Skylar Wilson.
