KC Rep’s Welcome To Fear City
April 28 - May 27
It’s July 1977 and the South Bronx is HOT — from a heat wave, from this new thing that would come to be known as “hip-hop,” and from the number of fires burning throughout the borough. WELCOME TO FEAR CITY takes a jarring, yet hopeful and funny, look at a community trying to get by in the midst of crime, apathy, poverty, and a whole new art form that’s about to electrify the world.
KC Repertory Theatre: Kansas City Repertory Theatre pursues theatrical excellence and advances the art form, creating and sharing stories at the center of the nation’s creative crossroads. KCRep cultivates passionate audiences, artists, and advocates who are invested in our region’s future. We build community by connecting people through productions and programming that educate, entertain, challenge and inspire.
