What You'll Get
With the exception of disputed pro football coin tosses and extreme debate clubs, the stage remains the only venue where arguments are regularly settled with a sword fight. Behold a dramatic settling of differences with today’s deal: for $24, you get two tickets to see Theori Stages’ production of I Still Love H.E.R. (atributetohiphop) at the Athenaeum Theatre, plus a card valid for a download of 200 popular hip-hop songs (a $49 value). Choose between the following showtimes:
- Friday, November 11, at 7 p.m.
- Saturday, November 12, at 7 p.m.<p>
Fueled by positive buzz throughout Chicago’s underground theater scene, Theori Stages’ flagship musical, I Still Love H.E.R., combines the grittiness of rap music with the elegance of Broadway to examine the conditions that helped forge the cultural emergence of hip-hop culture. The story’s spotlight falls upon a revered radio personality played by the show’s writer and director, Southside native Wendell J. Tucker, and his disgust with the current state of hip-hop. To mourn the perceived death of his beloved genre and LP records made from asbestos, he dreams up a final broadcast that is interrupted by Hip-Hop, a personification of the genre, who regales the audience with the true history of the music and its current status. Through scenes packed with emotional dialogue, dazzling dance sequences, and tension-filled games of Monopoly, the engaging performance weaves audiences through an exploration of sociological subjects including feminism, racism, and media influence. Family-friendly remixes and hits from hip-hop stars such as Common pepper the story with an air of realism, and also encourage spirited crowd participation throughout the show.
After fully absorbing the production’s inspiration-packed themes, guests are free to go home and download 200 popular hip-hop songs, which infuse everyday activities with head bobbing and spontaneous fits of krumping.
