21 Chump Street
Music and Lyrics by Lin-Manuel Miranda
Based on the story by Robbie Brown
Tale as old as time. Guy meets Girl. Guy likes Girl. Girl asks Guy to buy her drugs. Guy buys Girl weed. Girl is an undercover cop.
21 Chump Street is a captivating 15-minute musical by Pulitzer prize-winning writer Lin-Manuel Miranda. Based on a true story, it follows the unexpected consequences of a high-achieving student's infatuation with an undercover police officer. With music to rival the greats and a powerful message, it explores themes of justice, betrayal, and youthful naivety in the pursuit of love.
