What is BlackOut Night?

A BLACK OUT is the purposeful creation of an environment in which Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) identifying audience members can experience and discuss an event in the performing arts, film, athletic, and cultural spaces where they are the majority.

A concept birthed by Slave Play playwright Jeremy O. Harris, the inaugural BLACK OUT night took place on September 18, 2019. For the first time in history, all 804 seats of Broadway’s Golden Theatre were occupied by Black-identifying audience members in communion, celebration, and recognition of Broadway’s rich, diverse, and fraught history of Black work. Based on the success of the first BLACK OUT, Slave Play hosted a second BLACK OUT on January 8, 2020, to bookend its Broadway run. Since then, other BLACK OUT events have organically taken hold.

What can I expect when attending BlackOut Night?

The intention behind this performance is to provide a supportive, safe, judgment-free space for BIPOC theatregoers to experience a show made by BIPOC artists in a space reserved for the BIPOC community. The audience will be comprised of a majority of BIPOC audience members.

Are you excluding non-BIPOC people from attending this performance?

While we are not preventing or precluding anyone from attending this performance, we hope that non-BlPOC audience members will choose to experience the play on another date. We thank you in advance for supporting these artists and TimeLine as we facilitate an opportunity for a community to celebrate and enjoy this special event.
