MEET THE AMAZING CAST OF VOICE TALENT — ACTORS/SINGERS
It took two months, extensive theatrical community outreach, personal networking, emails, phone calls, audition samples, schedule juggling and advance rehearsal — BUT, in the end, the hard work, planning, and eventually, the performance payoff was EXCEPTIONAL.
After scores of submissions and extensive vetting, six of South Florida’s truly premiere film, television, stage AND vocal/singing talent participated in the six songs written and produced by Jeff Mustard for his Hip-Hop Stage Play production, Boycott, which is an adaptation of his Limited Series, Historical-Fiction | Drama TV show, inspired by the real-life events of the 1902 Kosher Beef Boycott.
Each actor was so strong, and every performance so compelling, the only way to do justice to each of these tremendously-talented individuals was to produce a highlights reel of their work on the material in the recording studio. These clips are significant cut-downs of long-form music videos of each song, except for Too Much Greed and Boycott Beef (NOTE: Jeff Mustard to provide interesting and media-noteworthy explanation for the absence of music videos for these two tracks).
The long-form videos are presently only available to Media via private invitation for viewing. In the meantime, we hope you enjoy the work of each of these gifted professionals and the great contribution each made to the fantastic musical product produced for Boycott: A NYC 1902 Hip-Hop Musical.

Scouting musical talent for his show, Jeff Mustard was on an aggressive hunt for actors who could sing, but not just sing, rap. Mustard saw Celia Roberts reprise the role of Mrs. Mushkin in the Little Shop of Horrors in a Boca Raton, Florida theater. Despite her young age, he instantly knew Celia had the chops to perform the role he envisioned for the two female ensemble pieces he wrote. Celia not only employed a Russian/Polish accent in her performance (which is what Mustard, as a bonus also sought) but she had rap skills. Mustard approached Celia at the conclusion of the show and explained the project. A month later Celia was in the studio was three other woman recording tracks. Celia doubled up on various characters, in one instance playing Mrs. Finkelstein, a much older Jewish/German woman in Mustard’s musical track. Celia’s musical performances in the Boycott NYC 1902 Hip-Hop Musical soundtrack include the following: Fanny’s Fury and More in Store.
