About this show

Back by popular demand, Shorts: An Evening of Hip-Hop Generation Playwrights is a special night of excerpts, one-acts and 10 minute plays features some of the best and brightest playwright talent of the Hip-Hop generation. In Claudia Alick's "Sick Rhymes," the intersection of violence and revelation reveals the power of words, memory and redemption. Seth Zvi Rosenfeld's "My Starship" tells the story of love in the 'hood and the anxiety of separation and co-dependence in the face of war. In Ben Snyder's "Tea," a young man distills the difference between chamomile and earl gray tea into a question of love vs. infatuation. Yuri Lane's "Soundtrack City" is a journey through NYC's 'hoods as told through a beat-box soundscape. Kerri Kochanski's "Slice" brilliantly loops the voices of young people into a chorus of vignettes and Vanessa Hidary's "Culture Bandit" tells the story of a New York Jewish girl's funny and sometimes explosive relationships with the diverse cultures that make up our great city. Part of the New York City Hip-Hop Theater Festival. Performances are on Saturday June 7 at 9pm and Tuesday, June 10 at 9pm.
