World Premiere at the Peacock Theatre
Award-winning dance company ZooNation presents Some Like it Hip Hop at The Peacock Theatre from 20 October to 19 November, following their critically acclaimed 2006 production, Into the Hoods, which became the longest running dance show in the West End.
Some Like it Hip Hop is a comical tale of love, mistaken identity and cross-dressing, inspired by Billy Wilderâ€™s classic movie Some Like it Hot and Shakespeareâ€™s Twelfth Night. The show stars StreetDance 3Dâ€™s Teneisha Bonner, So You Think You Can Danceâ€™s Tommy Franzen, who has also collaborated with the Royal Ballet, and Lizzie Gough.
The show is directed by ZooNation founder and Sadler’s Wells Associate Artist Kate Prince, and co-written by Prince and Felix Harrison. It features original music by Josh Cohen and DJ Walde.
