Based on the story by Robbie Brown, which originally appeared on WBEZ’s "This American Life," 21 Chump Street features music and lyrics by Miranda.

The work is described as a "new 14-minute musical based on a true story as reported in the series 'This American Life'. 21 CHUMP STREET is a cautionary tale of a high school honors student who falls for a cute transfer girl. He goes to great lengths to oblige her requset for marijuana in the hopes of winning her affection - only to find out that his crush is actually an undercover copy planted in the school to find drug dealers. 21 CHUMP STREET discusses the ramifications of peer pressure, conformity and drug use in our schools with a message that will stay with teenagers long after they leave the theater." It is billed as being perfect "for donor evenings, galas, special events and student/community outreach programs."
