SYNOPSIS

A trip from the 1970s into the future, Brotherhood: The Hip Hopera is a non-stop, high energy, one-man show that tells the parodied story of two brothers living the Hip Hop Life. This fast-forwarding/rewinding live-hip-hop show is spun in poignant rhymes and cleverly crafted lyrics.

Using Hip Hop, R&B, Rap, Soul, Funk, and Gospel, prepare for an epic journey of family and brotherly love. Brotherhood follows the story of CashMoney and MoneyPussy, twin brothers with little in common but their drug-addicted parents and their desperate desire to break out of the streets and rise to the heights of stardom as hip-hop performers.

REVIEWS

“A REAL GEM.” Live in Limbo

“A Starmaking performance.” Drew Rowsome

“Sébastien Heins radiates megawatts of charisma.” Stage Door

““as diverse as it is absorbing to watch…. incredibly expressive movements and storytelling…. If any play were to capture and define such a genre as “hip hopera,” this is the one.  Brotherhood is a fascinating work from someone no doubt at the start of a thrilling career.” Mooney on Theatre
