Bomb-itty was an "add-rap-tation" of the Shakespearean classic, The Comedy of Errors, written and performed by GQ, Erik Weiner, Jason Catalano and Jordan Allen-Dutton. New York Shakespeare Festival's Andy Goldberg (Romeo and Juliet, Two Noble Kinsmen) directed the Off-Broadway engagement. With original music by DJ J.A.Q, Bomb-itty modernized the classic Shakespeare story and retold it in rap. The play was first performed at New York University's Experimental Theatre Wing with a workshop that followed at New York Stage and Film.

"Scratch + Burn" will feature the talents of GQ, Jordan, J.A.Q. and Dragon. For more information about the new show, go to www.mtv.com
