CJ is (reluctantly) staying with his (extremely over-the-top) Nana, in a world considerably different from the one he’s used to! Dragged along on a bus ride that’s loud and gritty and weird, CJ travels a little closer to his roots and learns that things are not always what they seem.
Don’t miss this dynamic musical that will take your whole family on an eclectic, heart-thumpin’, hip-hop joy ride – without leaving your living room!
