Perhaps Glenn Alan is best known as the founder of the DC Black Theatre & Arts Festival, one of the Nation’s most favorite theatre festivals celebrating extraordinary stories by people of African descent. This yearly, 10-day - multidisciplinary arts festival is filled with plays, music, film, dance, workshops and groundbreaking performances by Artists from around the world. It’s no wonder that in a few short years Mr. Alan has become a very sought after producer - having produced nearly 400 plays and building an incredible network of actors, directors, playwrights, industry professionals and creating one of the largest databases of African American Actors.
Glenn seriously began pursuing his interest in writing in 1986 while attending Howard University. Since that time, he has created voluminous works: 14 plays, 7 books of poetry, 2 collections of short stories, and a highly acclaimed blues CD with legendary blues bassist BT Richardson.
