All patrons, regarding of age must have a ticket. Anything can come to life with a simple beat, rhythm, and rhyme. In this interactive performance, two world-renowned Hip Hop performers--Baye Harrell, a Helen Hayes Award nominee, and Paige Hernandez, a Kennedy Center Citizen Artist Fellow--collaborate on the spot to "remix" everything from folk tales to classical art. History is revived through a Hip Hop lens!

Paige and Baye tell stories and perform to original beats by Nick "Nickthe1da" Hernandez with the help of a magical boom box that needs your help to power their songs. This show explores not only the language of words, but also the language of the body, sounds, and numbers. Most enjoyed by age 5 and up. All patrons, regardless of age must have a ticket.
