Hip-hop meets history in this four-part musical series about the 16th century priest Martin Luther. In Episode 2, The Storyteller continues to build his case for Martin. The year is 1519, and Martin's message of freedom has gone viral with the German people. But Martin's newfound fame with the poor has also made him Public Enemy Number One with the Pope. When an epic "rap battle" of wits at the Leipzig Debate lands him in the Pope's custody, it looks like the mouthy monk doesn't have a prayer. Will Martin's way with words get him off the hook, or is it case closed for the Revolution?
Complete cast includes: Brant Rotnem, Davon Williams, Robert Fleet, Amanda Hootman, T.R. Krupa, Tony Gonzalez, Kira Alvarez, Darrell Philips, Damian Sandolo, Nicholas Mongiardo-Cooper, Declan Meagher, Brad Simanski, Jonathan Langley, Elizabeth Dubberley, and Nick Dubberley.
Arrangement/Orchestrations by Johnnie Long III.
This section is where I usually begin with commenting on the story, but OH MY GOODNESS – the opening is fantastic! I wish I knew who to credit with the male vocal, he's amazing! "Through the rise of tides or the mountain high…"
Okay, this is the next installment in the trial of Martin Luther. Again, I cannot speak to the accuracy of the content because I'm not familiar with the historical theology.
I WILL RAVE (as my last review) on the presentation. This is an absolutely incredible "show", for lack of a better word. I hope that it will catch on and can see this presentation as something that can be used in a classroom. This is meant as a high compliment.I would have retained a lot more history presented this way.
November Christine is a huge talent, from this story/lyric to arrangement and beyond, wow!! 🌠 🌠 🌠
*I was given a copy of this book in exchange for my unbiased review. This performance has piqued my interest in Martin Luther. One of these days I'm going to follow through and read up on him.
