When: Saturdays, 3 & 8 p.m. and Wednesdays-Fridays, 8 p.m. Continues through Feb. 15 2020
Way back in 2007, the Repertory Theatre St. Louis presented the clever and unbelievably entertaining The Bomb-itty of Errors, a hip-hop twist on Shakespeare's The Comedy of Errors. The show, conceived and written by brothers J and G Qaiyum (with several collaborators), was a smash as both hip-hop and Shakespearean theater. Now Shakespeare Festival St. Louis presents the Q Brothers' new show, Dress the Part. It's another hip-hop variation on a Shakespeare play, specifically Two Gentlemen of Verona. Two actors will play more than twenty roles, while DJ Crim Dolla Cray provides the live soundtrack. If it's anything like The Bomb-itty, it's going to be a hoot. Dress the Part is performed at 8 p.m. Wednesday through Friday and at 3 and 8 p.m. Saturday (January 29 to February 15) at the Ready Room (4195 Manchester Avenue, www.sfstl.com). Tickets are $20 to $35.
