Culture is what unites us. Music, poetry, art, science, medicine, politics, faith, and values. Culture is also what divides us (see the previous list of examples). With the culture wars intensifying and norms changing faster than you can say 'where's my tribe?', who better to guide us through what 'culture' actually is - how it evolves and who benefits - than a middle class, white, science rapper from Canada?

These folks obviously love this show. It shows in the performance.

Can we learn to control our impulses before they control us? Conversely, and perhaps even more importantly: can we learn to let them flow when it really matters? Parts of your brain give you impulses and desires, whilst other parts of the same mysterious organ slam on the brakes, based on your long-term goals and society's expectations. Living a productive life in modern society necessitates the regulation of a lot of impulses. But then creativity and spontaneity sometimes require us to let them off the leash. So, which is better?

It was forty years ago when Shakespeare in the Park's Delacorte Theater was last invaded by The Bard's CORIOLANUS, but perhaps The Public's politically-minded artistic director Oskar Eustis thought this would be a good time to present a drama about an inexperienced politician who initially gains favor on a wave of populism, only to suffer downfall when his disdain for those outside of his privileged class is exposed.
