We use our original musical theater productions to centralize and amplify African American arts, inspire future generations of black artists, and establish Mama Foundation as an esteemed bearer of Black Excellence. From the record-breaking musical Mama I Want to Sing to our one-of-a-kind production Alive! 55+ and Kickin’, we continue to produce Original African American Musical Theater that has been, and will be, a staple in the Harlem community and beyond for decades to come.
