Hip hop icons Beastie Boys are the subject of a new musical - 'Licensed to Ill, which follows members Ad-Rock, MCA and the late Mike D on their journey from punk-loving teenagers to internationally adored rap mega stars.
Working with musical comedy teams Abandonman and Rubberbadnits, directors Simon Maeder and Adam El Hagar have employed an “eclectic, hilarious style that a show about the Beasties deserves.” Expect a show that contains live music, physical comedy and even puppetry, whilst at the same time tackles themes of 'racism, misogyny, and the battle for hip hop's soul'.
The show, brought to life thanks to a Kickstarter campaign begins in November, and runs from the 23rd to December 12th at the Camden People's Theatre.
