WHY GO: Paige Hernandez’s debut theater work, Paige in Full features Hernandez alongside of DJ Reborn, in a unique coming of age story that speaks to a dynamic, hip-hop-influenced generation. A blending of poetry, dance, media and music that tells the tale of a multicultural girl’s journey of self-discovery, where hip-hop music takes center stage. “Such pointed moments will prompt theatergoers to ruminate a little about identity politics and the molding of the self in a multicultural world” says The Washington Post. The production explores how identity is shaped by ethnicity and popular culture, telling a personal yet universal story through the lens of hip-hop music. www.paigeinfull.com/geniuses
