What's Hip?: Diversity

morningamp:

Vocalo intern/comedian, Tim Barnes joins ‘Morning AMp’ hosts Brian Babylon and Molly Adams to discuss the latest trends. The big topic of 2014 is diversity.

Diversity has been around for a while, but now it’s cooler than ever.
Audra McDonald playing a nun in the 2013 remake of ‘The Sound of
Music,’ Barack Obama still being President of the U.S., and people
putting pressure on SNL to have a black female cast member has set the
precedent for 2014.

Members of Free Street Theater talk "DOPE"

vocalooverdrive:

“DOPE follows the life of a joint from seed to eventual consumption. Created and performed by youth age 13-19, DOPE is fast, funny and unapologetic look at the USA’s most controversial drug.”

Above is a description of Free Street Theater’s newest production, “DOPE: 420 Stories About Pot, Weed, Khush, Prisons, Parents, and People”.

Luis and Shantell talk with several members of the Free Street Theater about the mission of their theater and this particular show.
