Romeo & Juliet Hip Hop Style in the LIC

Posted on January 25, 2008. Filed under: Entertainment, Off the beaten path |

Among the industrial eye-sores and luxury condo monstrosities of Long Island City, sits the LaGuardia Performing Arts Center. This arts facility is “committed to presenting culturally and ethnically diverse programming of the highest quality for the College community, the residents of Queens and the tri-state area”  One particularly interesting event taking place in March is the hip-hop rendition of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet. “Set in Harlem, this hip-hopped-up “Romeo and Juliet” is a fast-moving and modern take on the classic play…the entire production is scored with soul, R&B, and rap. But not to worry Shakespeare’s text will not be altered”- courtesy LPAC  LPAC also offers live Jazz music, open mic night, theater, workshops and a plethora of other arts events. Just check out the events schedule.
