Subject:    Shakespeare in Spanish and Hip-Hop Shakespeare

Chicago Shakespeare Theater is developing two world premiere productions this 
summer, a bilingual Spanish-English Romeo and Juliet, Romeo y Julieta, and a 
hip-hop Much Ado about Nothing, Funk It Up About Nuthin' (by two of the guys who 
did Bomb-itty of Errors). I am looking for precedents for both.

I would appreciate references to productions of

1) any Shakespeare play produced as a contemporary adaptation that uses some 
Spanish.

2) any professional (i.e., non-academic) production of any Shakespeare play 
adapted with hip-hop language or style. This can include any kind of 
performance, such as Rennie Harris' dance piece Rome and Jewels.
