BCA AfterParty: Shakespeare to Hip-Hop’s Shakespeare Time-Traveling Speakeasy
Plaza Black Box Theatre at Boston Center for the Arts
May 26 | 9:30 pm

BCA partners with Boston Art & Music Soul (BAMS) Fest, Inc. and spoken word artist Regie Gibson to bring you an evening of Shakespeare and hip-hop that is all the way live! We’ll remix the Bard’s words, back it with a funky beat and connect the past to the present and breath new life into these classic works in an evening that is sure to feed your soul. There’s a $10 cover charge cause this is a party and we’re gonna throw down!

Shakespeare to Hip Hop: Coming at you with rhythms and slick literary what-nots.

The Shakespeare Time-Traveling Speakeasy is a multi-media, musical and literary concert exploring the mysteries of William Shakespeare through blues, jazz, hip-hop, country, funk and more as a backdrop for stories, poems, songs and humor relating to “the Cat from Strat” (Stratford upon Avon, that is).

Shakespeare to Hip-hop is the combined poetic and performance talents of literary performers Regie Gibson and Marlon Carey. Both have been featured at several TED events and on various NPR programs, most recently WBUR’s Radio Boston.

Laying down sounds behind them will be the “House Playas”!
