The co-writers and co-directors first devised the show &mdash;their second rapping Shakespeare&mdash;in 2008. But even before coming back to Navy Pier (home of Chicago Shakespeare Theater) they'll take &quot;Funk It Up&quot; to the <a href="http://www.publictheater.org/">Joseph Papp Public Theatre</a> in New York for one performance, Jan. 8. The Q Bros.' shows have enjoyed particular success in London and at the Edinburgh Festival as well as Chicago.</p></p> Tue, 16 Nov 2010 20:00:00 -0600 http://www.wbez.org/blog/city-room-blog/q-brothers-bringin-funk-back-navy-pier-2011
