Checking Out the Hippity-Hop
"Clay" is a one-man show where the performer is so convincing the story has to be autobiographical. On the other hand, the story is so outrageous it couldn't possibly be true.
At the center of this conundrum is Matt Sax, a recent college graduate who wrote and performs this hip hop show currently at the Kirk Douglas Theater.
I'm in awe of his talent.
I'm not a fan of the hip hop, and wasn't really expecting to enjoy this show -- the tale of a white boy's journey into the world of hip hop music.
Sax plays several different character in the course of this 80 minute tightly wound and highly effecting show.
I was completely blown away.
