A hip-hop mashup of lyrical poetry, live music, and commentary on Black experience in America, this tour-de-force charts a souljourney on an exotic island where Black Ulysses discovers his place in a society full of gun violence and oppression. Recently honored by the Kennedy Center for Original Hip-Hop Script, this narrative dives into overcoming isolation through fantasy, myth and escape. Director: Cole Wimpee. Design: Eric Armstrong. Stage Manager: Katie O'Rear. Recommended for: all audiences.
