During 2016/17 Shakespeare to Hiphop (literary performers and TEDxBoston alumni Regie Gibson and Marlon Carey) partnered with the Boston Public Library to celebrate William Shakespeare. The result is The Shakespeare Time-Traveling Speakeasy: an all-new presentation combining American jazz-funk-country-pop and hip-hop with poetry, song, storytelling, rap, and Shakespeare’s own words. The Shakespeare Time-Traveling Speakeasy is a hip literary trip that explores the life, influence and mysteries surrounding the man reverently known as “The Bard.”
