Read review of the production

21 Chump Street is a 15-minute musical adaptation of a This American Life story. It is a love story, a tragedy, and a lesson in right and wrong. To mimic the real story, the Narrator’s space existed separately from the story-telling space, allowing her to always observe without participating and for Justin to weave in-and-out of storytelling and participating. The ensemble supplemented the action as other characters and choreographic representations of the other character’s emotional stakes.
