Honest Pint Theatre is holding auditions for its Spring 2020 show! This show is a fast paced, hip hop retelling of one of Shakespeare’s biggest hits, and while contractual obligations prevent us from naming the show (for now)….it rhymes with Comedy of Errors!

"Before 'Hamilton' swept Broadway off its feet with a rap narrative of U.S. history, there was THIS SHOW -- It is a fresh and pulsating 'ad-rap-tation' of one of William Shakespeare's best known comedies, set in modern day New York-esque city. This madcap farce of sex, money and mistaken identity is equal parts play and rap concert. It seamlessly weaves the classical text with a contemporary hip hop score reminiscent of Run DMC, DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince, Beastie Boys, Digital Underground, Snoop, Ja Rule and Eminem to create a slick and inventive new theatrical experience. The New Yorker cleverly calls this show 'The Beastie Boys of Syracuse.'"
