“Shakespeare to Hip Hop” refers to the bridging of the generational gap that often exists between  the Classic literary tradition and popular culture. By embracing the traditions and foundations of the past and the best of the present, Shakespeare to Hip Hop connects with students of all ages in ways that are literary, lively and fun.

Regie Gibson, a National Poetry Slam Champion, and Marlon Carey are spoken word artists, musicians, actors, and educators extraordinaire. They have combined their talents for an inspirational, informative, and intriguing poetry performance that travels to schools across the New England Area and beyond, garnering much praise from students and teachers alike for their ability to make the written word come alive. The duo creates and adapts writing and performance techniques culled from the study of ancient texts, and fuses them with modern and contemporary spoken word, jazz-poetry, hip-hop and pop-music.

Regie, when you perform, you are supersonic and in the stratosphere, where you can see that the Earth really is a ball, moist, blue-green. Regie, you sing and chant for all of us. Nobody gets left out." -Kurt Vonnegut

"Intelligent, talented, energetic, erudite, articulate, kind and giving, truly gifted artists and most noble men of faith and honor, you blew us away. Thank you for sharing so freely and fully of yourselves."— William L. Burke III, Headmaster, St. Sebastian's School
