Universes - Hip-Hop Theater 10th Anniversary

Universes, the hip Bronx-based ensemble that pioneered the hip-hop theater movement, showcases its best work in a tenth-anniversary celebration (November 16 through 19; $20–$50; call 212-352-3101 for tickets and details).

1. Poet Mentors

A gala benefit performance of sketches and readings by poet Willie Perdomo and playwright Dael Orlandersmith.

2. Blue Sweat

Making its New York premiere, Chay Yew’s mix of jazz, flamenco, blues, and poetry tells the tale of a down-and-out horn player.

3. Slanguage

Universes’ most famous work, a fast-paced hip-hop performance that’s loosely structured around a subway ride from Brooklyn to the Bronx.

4. Sunday Brunch

A concert reading of Ameriville, a new work that blends poetry and music and draws inspiration from Orson Welles’s War of the Worlds broadcast.
