With a nod to Billy Wilder’s much loved film and Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night, Some Like it Hip Hop is a comic tale of love, mistaken identity, cross-dressing, gender stereotypes and revolution; all played out in ZooNation’s trademark style of hip hop, comedy and physical theatre.
Directed by ZooNation founder Kate Prince, with original music by Josh Cohen and DJ Walde, Some Like It Hip Hop’s all star cast includes Tommy Franzen and Lizzie Gough, who shot to fame in the first series of BBC talent show So You Think You Can Dance? and Teneisha Bonner (Into The Hoods, Insane In The Brain, StreetDance 3D, Shoes).
ZooNation Dance Company, which performs Some Like It Hip Hop, was founded in 2002. In 2006, the company premiered Into The Hoods, which went on to become the longest running dance show the West End has ever seen. In 2010, it became a Resident Company at Sadler’s Wells and Prince became an Associate Artist.
