Running time: 2 hours and 35 minutes, one intermission
Get ready for a hyperkinetic mix of live video, hip hop, jazz, rock, gospel, blues, Latin rhythms, and spoken word as the explosive theatre ensemble UNIVERSES rocks and unlocks the radical and complicated legacy of the Black Panthers and Young Lords in this high-wattage fusion of story and song. “A dazzling creation,” says KLCC Radio.
Party People was developed in The Ground Floor, Berkeley Rep’s Center for the Creation and Development of New Work.
