How to Break
A MUSICAL FUSION OF HIP HOP AND SOCIAL JUSTICE

Book and Lyrics by AARON JAFFERIS
Songs Composed by REBECCA HART
Beatbox Score by YAKO 440

JANUARY 5-14, 2018

Ignited by an electric collision of theatre, breakdancing, and lyrical flow, this ground-breaking new musical follows two teenage hip hop dancers as they battle not only their disease, but also the hospital caregivers, for control over their own bodies. With a score backed by a beatboxed soundscape of the patients’ breaths and IV beeps, tensions rise as race, class, and language create life-threatening rifts between the patients and their treatment team. As the doctor and therapist wrestle over the health benefits of art versus painkillers, the teens attempt to break through their diagnoses in search of a gut understanding of what it means to be ill – both metaphorically and literally.

About Beta Series
Beta Series is your chance to see exciting new musicals while they are still in the process of being created. After each performance, the authors will rewrite, make changes, and work with the cast to incorporate new scenes and songs before the next show. As the authors tweak and adjust based on what you have to say, the musical will continue to evolve throughout the run. And when those same shows move on to our Mainstage, the regional theatre scene, or even Broadway, you’ll get to say, “I knew it when.”
