There is war all around us. There are the ongoing conflicts overseas, but there are also the smaller, personal wars that are fought closer to home. For Chance and Money, two young African Americans with dreams of hip-hop success, the fight before them is one of artistic purity. Will they take the easy route to fame and fortune with party raps about money and women or will they stay true to themselves and make music about what they know: economic hardships, life on the wrong side of the tracks and life back in the civilian world after a tour of duty in Iraq? Steve Broadnax and Michael Bordner's new musical Smash/Hit! fuses the classic story of the struggle to be heard with hip-hop beats laid down by a DJ and drummer live onstage to create something new. The Black Rep presents Smash/Hit! at 7 p.m. Thursday, 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday (April 24 through May 18) at the Grandel Theatre (3610 Grandel Square; 314-534-3810 or www.theblackrep.org). There's one 2 p.m. matinee on Saturday, May 18. Tickets are $35 to $47.
Thursdays-Sundays. Starts: April 25. Continues through May 18, 2013
