How We Got On
February 22 - March 17, 2013
CAST proudly presents HOW WE GOT ON, fresh from the Humana Festival of New American Plays. In the late 1980s, during the rise of hip-hop on the streets of New York and L.A., a different story played out in the small towns and suburbs. Hank, Julian and Luann are Midwestern kids who forge a cultural identity through parking lot poetry and boom box beats. In this remixed coming-of-age tale, a live MC spins a history lesson in the origins of rap and presents the story of suburban kids finding their rhythm as a new music is born.
