Don't see it if Nothing bad to say, it’s a must see. Looking forward to the other versions of Rap Guide.
See it if My whole family loves Baba - we see every show, even my rap-hating husband. Brilliant at conveying complex science but fun & funny
Don't see it if you aren't interested in evolution or in learning something. Or if you want a story or a full cast. Or you cannot imagine ever liking rap
See it if u want to see a smart, original, well-researched, inventive, entertaining, accessible (& one-sided) hip-hop TED Talk on Darwinism/Globalism.
Don't see it if you're a hardcore creationists (whose views are peremptorily dismissed very early in the show); you like to sleep with mean people.
See it if you are a rapping fan and want it based on serious content. Ingenious creativity, word-play and unique show but you gotta love rapping.
Don't see it if Don't like hip-hop rap or want to just sit back and be entertained; it takes some effort to listen to everything and absorb it but worth it
See it if You want something different-a cleverly constructed solo show teaching evolution through hip hop. Not theatre per se, but very entertaining.
Don't see it if You can't tolerate any form of hip hop, even in a very mild form. But you should definitely go if you don't believe in evolution.
See it if you want to see a brilliant presentation about evolution and Charles Darwin, exquisitely researched told in rap style/ multi-media format.
Don't see it if you have no interest in evolution and are not ready to listen to a very fast-paced performance; dislike solo performance shows.
See it if you are curious about the intersection of theatre, scientific research & analysis, and hip hop culture.
Don't see it if you're averse to waving your arms around like you just don't care, participating in call & response, and staying for a Q & A with the artist
