(BHT) was founded in 1972 by Bedford Stuyvesant Restoration Corporation (Restoration), a community development corporation whose mission is to be the catalyst for the progressive improvement of the quality of life for the people in Bedford Stuyvesant. The Billie Holiday Theatre states its mission as 1) to present professional theatre in a manner which enlightens, uplifts and entertains the African/Caribbean American community and 2) to sustain a working environment in which the talented and trained artist can fully develop and explore his craft. The plays and programs that BHT produces must be so dynamic in their relevance and content, connecting to our community that a transformation begs to take place.
