The NEC has been awarded with a Pulitzer Prize, Tony Awards, Drama Desk Awards and more than a dozen Obie Awards, and their productions have featured such boldfaced names as Angela Bassett, Laurence Fishburne, Samuel L. Jackson, Phylicia Rashad and Denzel Washington. The 2008-2009 Signature season will feature some of the NEC's most acclaimed shows: Leslie Lee's The First Breeze of Summer, Samm-Art Williams' Home, and Charles Fuller's Zooman and the Sign, as well as a staged reading of Douglas Turner Ward's Day of Absence. With Ruben Santiago Hudson serving as Artistic Associate, this season is not to be missed!
