About this show

The Flea Theater presents the New York premiere of Hype Man by playwright, breakbeat poet, and essayist Idris Goodwin. Following its sold-out run in Boston, this hip-hop play dares to ask who has the responsibility to speak up in the face of social injustice. A front man, hype man, and beat maker are on the verge of hitting it big when yet another police shooting shakes them to the core. The Flea Theater associate artist Kristan Seemel and artistic director Niegel Smith codirect the Bats company in this production.
