Brash, bold and breakin' all the rules, Beatstreet is a powerful and "gritty streetwise musical"
(Los Angeles herald-Examiner). Starring Rae Dawn Chong and Guy Davis, Beat Street features
extraordinary break dancing, stunning graffiti art and the revolutionary rapping that luanched a hip-hop generation.
When talented rapper/DJ Kenny (Davis) meets cultured jazz artist Tracy (Chong), he is so inspired by her dedication
that he vows to use his talents to escape the ghetto. But when his friend, a gifted graffiti-artist, is killed in
a tragic accident, Kenny comes face to face with the high price of artistic passion. Now he has to choose between
using his own creative talents as a ladder to fame and fortune, or offering them up as a memorial to the hopes and dreams of his friend.
Featuring the New York City Breakers and the extreme sounds of Grandmaster Melle Mel and the Furious Five,
Beat Street serves up an electrifying display of "nonstop music and dancing" (The New York Times)!
