This piece was fun interactive and engaging. If you love hip hip and a story about a family struggling to make it, you'll love this piece. Highly recommend.

I read some reviews which were misleading--making it not seem as good as it was. the acting was terrific, the story entertaining and the theatre was very nice. for some reason I have never seen a play there, but i would definitely return.

Written by Kristoffer Diaz

Directed by Jaime Castañeda

In New York City’s Lower East Side, Alejandro Arroyo and his sister Molly cope with their mother’s recent death in very different ways. Alejandro tears down his mom’s bodega, replacing it with a stylish new nightclub that doesn’t seem to be drawing the crowds he hoped for. Molly takes to the streets, writing her name in graffiti in the most inappropriate places. Meanwhile, college student Lelly Santiago stumbles across a lost bit of hip-hop history that could change all of their lives.
