Beatbox: A Raparetta (2003)

Dan Wolf (d.wolf) and Tommy Shepherd (Soulati) are founders of the hip hop music and theater collective Felonious (previously Felonious Punks). Evolving from an a capella duo to a full band where they blend hard-hitting lyrics with the sounds of reggae, jazz, funk and latin music resulting in an unbeatable combination. Beatbox: A Raparetta is their first of many productions and has been staged in New York, San Francisco, Oakland, and Germany. A story of two step-brothers who make their way through life as hip hop street performers, the play explores the streets and the music that brought them together and threaten to rip them apart. As a friend from Mickey Finch's (Tommy Shepherd) past re-enters the picture, Tet begins to feel left out and begins spiraling downward in an engrossing tale that engages until the gut-wrenching finale.
