Prince Paul and his son P Forreal will bring their hip hop musical, Negroes on Ice, on tour around the US. The (free!) show bills itself as the “perfect opportunity to learn about hip-hop, father/son relationships and the kind of senseless violence that is so absurd, it’s funny.” It has nothing to do with figure skating, by the way.
The musical is directed by Sacha Jenkins of egotripland. Full tour dates:
Sunday, Nov. 26th, 2011@ Viaduct Theatre – Chicago, IL
Thursday, Dec. 1st, 2011 @ Busboys and Poets – Washington D.C.
Saturday, Dec. 3rd, 2011@ Future Bar Music Lounge – Boston, MA
Friday, Jan. 13th, 2011@ Capri Theatre – Minneapolis, MN
Saturday, Jan. 14th, 2012 @ Southside Theatre – San Francisco, CA
