Last year audiences may remember the production “Some Like It Hip Hop” appeared at the Peacock Theatre, where crowds were treated to a re-worked hip hop version of “Some Like It Hot”. That production was headed by ZooNation with Kate Prince taking on the role of director and this team is now set to make their way back to the capital (alongside co-writer Felix Harrison), to return this hit show to the Peacock Theatre, where audiences are in for a treat.
So expect a stand-out show when you have picked up theatre tickets to witness the action unfold at the Peacock Theatre, a venue that regularly hosts the best in contemporary dance in the West End, much like its sister venue Sadler’s Wells. With “Some Like it Hip Hop” there is everything one needs in a compelling plot – from mistaken identity to revolution – as comedy and hip hop fuse onstage to create something that audiences are unlikely to forget in a hurry. Music is from DJ Walde and Josh Cohen.
Kate Prince is the founder of the ZooNation Company and as a choreographer she has a range of credits to her name, both on television and the stage, with examples such as “Strictly Dance Fever”, “Sport Relief” and “Blue Peter”. However, her stage credits earned her a 2009 Laurence Olivier Award nomination (for “Into the Hoods”), with examples of her work that include “BoxBeat” at Sadler’s Wells, “Breakin’ Convention” at Sadler’s Wells and “All You Need is Love” at the Queen’s theatre.
This promises to be a stand out show and one that will have audiences flocking to the West End later in the year, just prior to the arrival of “The Snowman” for its annual Christmas appearance.
“Some Like it Hip Hop” appears at the Peacock Theatre from Thursday 20th September 2012 to Saturday 13th October 2012.
