Evolutionary psychology, sex differences in behavior, and the modern dating scene. Can science serve as a road map to romance? It turns out, ovulation studies make for awkward first-date conversation.

Evolutionary Tales is a Hip-Hop Theater Cycle written and performed by Baba Brinkman. The cycle will be running all month, but we will be getting together this weekend to see the show and discuss afterwards. After Friday's show we will meet with Baba Brinkman himself to chat!

More about Evolutionary Tales:
SoHo Playhouse Inc. presents Evolutionary Tales: A Hip-Hop Theatre Cycle at The Players Theatre playing May 31 through June 23. Written and performed by Baba Brinkman, the Canadian rap artist and inventor of a new hybrid form of theatre: part hip-hop concert, part stand up comedy, and part TED Talk. Evolutionary Tales: A Hip-Hop Theatre Cycle consists of Brinkman’s three hit shows, Ingenious Nature, The Rap Guide To Evolution, and The Canterbury Tales Remixed, celebrating the evolutionary view of life in its endless forms.

With original music and live turntablism by UK DJ Jamie Simmonds, these three shows uniquely engage with great scientists and authors, as well as today’s hip-hop megastars, smoothly merging history’s most important ideas and stories with comedy, theatre, and lyricism. Together, they launch the world’s first ever hip-hop theatre cycle.
