I <3 Juliet (Illinois Shakespeare Festival)

The Q Brothers dazzled our audiences in 2015 with Q Gents, their hilarious hip-hop adaption of Two Gentlemen of Verona, and we are delighted to include their latest creation, I Heart Juliet, in our 40th anniversary season. This time with ten actors, the Q Brothers Collective is at it again, bringing their incredible energy, humor, and hip-hop verse to Shakespeare’s timeless masterpiece, Romeo & Juliet!

Othello: The Remix at Cook County Jail

One of the most rewarding events we’ve ever had the pleasure of experiencing. Not only did we get to bring our art to those in serious need of healing, but we got to do that in the city we grew up in, in the largest jail in the country. Check out the mini-doc we made about that very special day. Watch the video.

Lollapalooza 2017

The Q Brothers return to Lollapalooza for their 13th year straight of performing and running the Hip Hop Workshop at Kidzapalooza, we are happy that our jobs have now expanded into emceeing the Kidza Stage. We’ve watched some of these kids grow up before our very eyes, and some of them have entire albums of themselves (featuring the Q Brothers), one song per year that they’ve attended. We are extremely proud to be attached to this beautiful area of one of the world’s best music festivals ever!

U of Iowa residency

It’s back to school for the Q Bros! College, here we come again. But this time as artists in residence, at the University of Iowa, where GQ, JQ, Jackson Doran and Postell Pringle will be writing and directing their fresh new musical take on William Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar.
