What It Iz: The Spoken Wordical

  • Los Angeles Theater Center 514 South Spring Street Los Angeles, CA, 90013 United States (map)

A fusion of traditional musical theatre, hip-hop, and spoken-word poetics, this "spokenwordical" is inspired by the 1975 musical The Wiz. What It Iz is a journey of self-discovery from the birth of hip-hop through the social and political corruption that fuels the current incarceration epidemic. Poignant and humorous, mesmerizing and musical, come see What It Iz!

This event will feature RAA's Executive Director, Peter Walden, as Musical Director, Musician and Actor. Come out and support!
