Quotes & Highlights

“ This play is a novel, perceptive exploration of black and Hispanic teens trying to find their own voice as budding rap artists.” —Lake County News-Sun
“The opening night audience, composed of parents, grandparents and young teenagers, all sounded impressed both by this talented ensemble of young actors, as well as by the intelligent, engaging rap music they performed. The play’s appeal as an age-old tale of antagonism turned into amiability can’t be beat.” —Chicago Theatre Review
