Get Lit presents DANTE

Directed by Cynthia Ettinger

“Dante is co-written by Get Lit’s Literati Fellows, a troupe of young poets who serve as ambassadors for education and arts empowerment across Los Angeles and beyond, with inspiration from Hamilton and Get Lit’s former mentor Daveed Diggs”

On Tuesday, January 3rd at 8 pm, Get Lit presents DANTE, directed by The Actors’ Gang co-artistic director Cynthia Ettinger, at The Wallis Theatre.

DANTE—a contemporary hip-hop adaptation of Dante’s Inferno —where an LA kid, comes of age with all of the modern temptations the city has to offer.

DANTE mixes classic poetry, spoken word, music and choreography to engage with the past and delve into timeless themes of greed, love and longing …with inspiration from Hamilton and Get Lit’s former mentor Daveed Diggs. Dante is written by and stars the Get Lit’s Literati Fellows, a troupe of young poets who serve as ambassadors for education and arts empowerment across Los Angeles and beyond.
