Quotes & Highlights
“…the performers have a natural chemistry. Connell has a clownish side and a direct fearlessness; Andrews has a lush voice and an easy lyricism. Their humor can get down and dirty, but their good intentions are never in doubt.” —Los Angeles Times
“This cheerful two-man, spoken-word romp through territories expected (race relations) and unusual (dirty ideas for hallmark cards) stars an adorable odd couple: Steve Connell and Sekou [Andrews].” —TimeOut New York_ _
The Word Begins
Written and Performed by Sekou Andrews and Steve Connell
Developed and Directed by Robert Egan
Mashing up spoken word, comedy and hip-hop, Steve Connell and Sekou Andrews deliver hyper-kinetic performances in this fresh new satire that examines the current American cultural landscape as it appears to a young white man and a young black man.
Nominated for three Helen Hayes Awards, The Word Begins follows the journey of two men as they explore race, faith and morality in America — from the inner cities to the heartland. Throughout their compelling journey, Sekou and Steve move through a chaotic landscape as they attempt to come to terms with the realities of this American moment.
