Part of the unique quality of "Roofless" is the combination of realness and fantasy, the balance of magical sparkles & blood splatter, lol... traditional Musical Comedy and Hip-Hop rawness. Jerome and I have mad love for musical "cheesiness" & a good healthy irreverence for it at the same time. Part of maintaining that gritty-and-glittery balance in the show is our decision to write the dialog & lyrics with an uncensored realness. Editing the language of these characters would vastly decrease the undercurrent of authenticity - the hard truths which are the foundation of this show. Without that foundation, the story would just sink into a BP-sized oil-slick of cheesy sludge. Not typically what you'd hear in a musical...but hey, "typical" ...thaz not wassup. Truth.
