Echo Park Gets Trashed


Hip-Hop musical, Echo Park was

trashed by The New York Post on Tuesday June 5th. The musical,

tracks the early years of Hip-Hop played by Derrik Keyes. The

gist of the musical, which the New York Post labeled "Badly

written and convoluted" was that in the early days, it wasn't

about money or fame, it was a way of living. The two-hour show

featured Emcee's, DJ's and Breakdancers, and starred Kurtis Blow

and Grandmaster Caz. The only positive note the post had to say

about the production, which was written by Kelly Scott and Sean

Couch, was in the Breakdancing, calling the footwork "consistently

excellent, and the only thing that keeps you from fleeing the

theater." The show is playing at the famous Apollo Theater

in Harlem New York.
