Kellen "Klassik" Abston

A stand-up-and-cheer celebration of what it means to be an American

An elementary school history lesson on Rosa Parks ignites in a young Latino living at the crossroads of cultures a search for his place in American history—and his place in his own family as an aspiring musician. Part play, part concert, and all heartfelt journey of self-discovery, this one-of-a-kind theater experience blends Hip-Hop, spoken word poetry, and traditional solo performance with a live score from 2021 Milwaukee Arts Board Artist of the Year, Klassik.

“…something special…” Time Out New York
