The Realness: a break beat play by Idris Goodwin

Aaron Munoz, director

This theatrical experience interweaves spoken word, rap, and traditional dialogue for a hip hop tale of love & authenticity set in the late 1990s. In The Realness, we meet T.O.—a young man thrust into a captivating hip hop scene filled with stories, struggles, and a mesmerizing female MC, Prima. Is T.O. realabout his infatuation with a culture and music? Is he foreall about his feelings for Prima? Is she really realabout her feelings for him? The Realness will bring University of Illinois and Krannert audiences along for a journey that explores the discovery of our own authentic voice, growing up and falling in love.
