Description

North Coast, New York City’s premier hip-hop improv team, has long been known for their seamless melding of freestyle rapping and improv comedy. Now in the wake of Lin Manuel’s smash Broadway hit Hamilton, North Coast is here to help quench the people’s thirst for historical raps. Join North Coast for this very special historical performance as the team takes your favorite historical figure and performs a fully improvised “hip-hopera” around that figure’s life. Nikola Tesla? Bawse. Frederick Douglass? Flawless. Louisa May Alcott? Mic drop. Stand on the right side of history and buy your tickets today!
