HYPE MAN presented by Actor’s Theatre of Charlotte now until May 7

April 22 | 8:00 am - May 7 | 5:00 pm

In this Idris Goodwin play, a rapper, beat-maker, and hype man start to find success making music together, but harmony is harder to find when the interracial hip-hop trio clashes over how to use their newfound platform in the wake of a police shooting. Hype Man is a rhythmically woven drama exploring race, representation, fame, and friendship. A timely play about using your voice, filled with explosive energy and electric rhymes. Benefits: ATC will be partnering with a local chapter of The Bail Project for the run of HYPE MAN. Their mission, to combat mass incarceration by disrupting the money bail system, is an important step in challenging the issues present in our justice system that disproportionately affect minority communities. As HYPE MAN opens the conversation about the Black experience, we want to hear these concerns and offer tangible solutions. Please consider supporting their dream of creating a more equitable pretrial system, one that is truly grounded in the presumption of innocence for all, regardless of race, economic status, or accusation. Content: This show contains mature themes and language. Recommended age is 14+. Subject matter includes race relations, representation, and police brutality. TICKETS: atcharlotte.org
