Event Category: Shows
Inspired by the smash Broadway hit, Hamilton, North Coast’s ANYBODY takes an audience suggestion of any historical figure to create a full-length improvised hip-hopera. With past shows centering around Nikola Tesla, Frederick Douglass, and Louisa May Alcott, North Coast creates a dynamic show every night with their fast and funny improvised beats, rhymes, and storyline.
