SCARFACE, The AL CAPONE Musical
In « SCARFACE, The AL CAPONE Musical,» David Serero (starring as Capone) used Prohibition-era standards and re-arranged them in a Hip-Hop style, adding his operatic vocals, Musical Theatre, Jazz and others influences. The story is loosely inspired by Al Capone’s life, although David Serero, who wrote the musical, took liberties and added fictional characters such as Capone’s right arm: Franky, an African-American rapper (« in the style of Notorious B.I.G »), Lolita, Minnie and more. « Gangsta rap is what Capone would be listening today, mixed with Jazz and Opera, as it reflects what Capone says: If we can reach the top, the world will give in. Hip-hop is a very theatrical art form, over the top, expressing a sort of revenge from life and dreaming of a bigger future.
