ms. estrada

March 22 - April 22, 2018
Tickets start at $15*
The Sam

The boys at Acropolis U are too preoccupied with the Greek Games to treat their ladies right. But fierce feminist goddess, Liz Estrada, rallies her besties to take a stand – and campus chaos ensues.

A Hip-Hop remix of Aristophanes’ classic comedy, ms. estrada may well be the Girl Anthem of 2018.

 *Does not include a $2 Theater Restoration Fee.

This world premiere will be music directed by Postell Pringle (a member of the Q Brothers Collective) and choreographed by Ana “Rokafella” Garcia.

The Q Brothers are internationally known for their hip hop adaptations of the classics. These productions include Othello: The Remix, Funk It Up About Nothin’ (Much Ado), and Q Gents (Two Gents). The collective has grown beyond founding members GQ and JQ, to include Jackson Doran, and Postell Pringle. Together, Q Brothers Collective has written and composed Q Brothers Christmas Carol, ms. estrada (Lysistrata), Rome Sweet Rome (Julius Caesar), I Heart Juliet (Romeo and Juliet), and Long Way Home (The Odyssey).  You can also find them at Lollapalooza and Austin City Limits, performing and teaching kids to love rhyming as much as they do. @qbrothers1
