All Danny Hoch


Featured Products

Product Description
Theatre, performance art, or spoken word--whatever you call it, the work of actor/writer Danny Hoch is a solo tour de force. In Jails, Hospitals & Hip-Hop and Some People, New York City's rich oral traditions come alive on the page, as Manhattan Boricua English, Brooklyn Polish, Bronx Dominican Spanish, Queens Trinidadian English, Jamaican patois, and Hip-Hop all get flipped and flexed center stage.
     The range of contemporary experience on display in Hoch's monologues is astonishing: A white teenager dreams of being a black gangsta rapper. A wheelchair-bound kid explains how his mother smoked crack during pregnancy. A pale-skinned Bronx street vendor enrages a policeman who can't figure out what race he is. A young Puerto Rican man on crutches rhapsodizes about his dancing talent.
     Now the thousands of fans who have enjoyed Mr. Hoch live or on HBO, as well as the many more who've only heard about him, can enjoy both Jails, Hospitals & Hip-Hop and his earlier, equally brilliant work, Some People, in a single volume that confirms his status as a unique and important artist.
Product Description

The inaugural anthology of one of the first playwrights of the Hip-Hop Generation.

"The best of the shape-shifting solo performers who brought multiethnic New York to the stage in the nineties." -Time Out New York

"Mr. Hoch is a specialist . . . channeling the restless souls of the dispossessed and the marginalized since the early 1990s, becoming a boiling one-man melting pot." -The New York Times

Celebrated among peers like Eric Bogosian, John Leguizamo, and Anna Deavere Smith, Danny Hoch is one of the most powerful solo performers and talented monologists of his time. Capturing the voices of a multicultural city and a hip-hop politic with an ironic social lens and linguistic bravado, he has given expression to language and stories that were previously absent from the American canon. This unprecedented anthology contains three of the celebrated performer's most acclaimed solo works—Taking Over; Jails, Hospitals & Hip-Hop and Some People—the long-awaited ensemble play Till the Break of Dawn and the one-act Up Against the Wall, a repeat favorite of universities and high schools.

Danny Hoch is an actor, playwright and director of both stage and film whose works have garnered awards such as a Guggenheim Fellowship, two Obies, two Sundance Fellowships and a Tennessee Williams Fellowship. In 2000 Mr. Hoch founded the Hip-Hop Theater Festival which has since presented over 100 Hip-Hop Generation plays from around the globe and now appears annually in several American cities.
