A Musical of Hip-Hop and Healing

World Premiere of How to Break at Village Theatre

“Just break a little every day, it gets easier that way.”

Village theatre brings tragedy, hope and hip-hop to a moving musical that forces its characters to look death in the face, and keep dancing. How to Break focuses on hip-hop dancer Ana Ramos as she’s diagnosed with cancer and is interned at a children’s hospital for chemotherapy. She tries to keep up with her dance, stresses over her family’s finances, meets another hip-hop boy who’s sick, and faces the reality of her body breaking down despite her best efforts.
