           Bring in 'da Noise, Bring in 'da Funk is a musical revue telling the story, through tap, of black history from slavery to the present. The musical numbers are presented along with supertitles, projected images and videotapes and with continuing commentary. Wolfe took the rap words of Reg E. Gaines and turned them into “tap/rap (tap dancing informed by hip-hop and funk rhythms).”
