  • Charlotte-Gastonia-Rock Hill, NC-SC (1888PressRelease) May 24, 2012 - With the last show of the season, On Q Productions explores the "reason for rhyme" with Forbes' Hip Hop influenced Rhyme Deferred in dynamic fashion by asking the question is Hip Hop only about fast cars, available women and flashy clothes? Or is the culture about something deeper, something akin to jazz, spirituals and Shakespeare, a street-savvy, tradition-rich portal to the soul? Rhyme Deferred is a powerful performance piece that argues for Hip Hop's higher purpose.

    Forbes makes a strong case in this poetic fairy tale, exaggerating good and evil, with a title loosely based on the Langston Hughes classic A Dream Deferred and a storyline that takes cues from the traditional Cain and Abel story.

    The show will run June 1 through June 16 (Wednesday and Thursday, show begins at 7:30 p.m., Friday and Saturday at 8:00 p.m.; Sunday at 3:00 p.m.) All tickets range from $17.00 to $22.00, general admission and are available at www.carolinatix.org or by calling 704.372.1000.
