Rich rapper Tupac Shakur (b.

Now this… this I like. A fresh idea--on a bizarre reality, it turns out--acted/written/directed by comics with a sharp kindred sensibility (to my own, for sure, and that’s all I care about). Theater will never grow stale as long as shows like this appear on the scene once in a while. Kudos to the fringe for recognizing that. More of it, I say.... full review
