A World Premiere Kennedy Center Commission

Written by Brian Quijada | Music by Marvin Quijada | Directed by Pirronne Yousefzadeh

Discover the power of walking in another person’s shoes.

Mark Twain’s classic The Prince and the Pauper is reimagined as a digital age American Hip Hop story by playwright Brian Quijada, with direction by Pirronne Yousefzadeh and music by Marvin Quijada. In the divided Capital City, the ruling class called The Promised has banned rap and dance after an attempted revolution by the progressive New Wave people. Royal Kid Prince is set to inherit the throne—until he meets Pablo, a New Wave drummer who performs for underground rap battles. When the two switch identities, mayhem and confusion follow. But by standing in one another’s shoes, Kid Prince and Pablo unearth discoveries that could start a whole new revolution.

Most enjoyed by age 9 and up. All patrons, regardless of age, must have a ticket.
