About this show

The Loaves and Fish Repertory Theater Company present Revenge of a King as part of the tenth annual New York International Fringe Festival. This multicultural hip-hop musical features original music, freestyle rhymes, an MC battle, graffiti, dance and a live DJ. Hamlet, one of the most recognizable tragedies in Shakespeare's theatrical canon has been transplanted from Denmark to the gritty streets of New York. Revenge of a King combines the elements of hip-hop and themes from Shakespeare to give you a brand new piece of theater. The play, written by Herb Newsome and directed by Kennedy Center Award winner Steve Broadnax, follows the story of Hamilton L. King, an aspiring hip-hop artist, as he deals with overcoming his father's mysterious death while simultaneously learning to accept his mother's untimely marriage. Confusion, doubt, and thoughts of retribution take over as new elements unfold leading him down a path of self-destruction.
