Adam Horovitz, the Beastie Boy better known as Ad-Rock, had recently remixed artsy Afro-indie sensation tUnE-yArDs' gentrification-wracked belter "Gangsta" and made some PB&J for Bravo's Top Chef: Just Dessert. Now he's handling the original score for an Off-Broadway play produced by the Barefoot Theatre Company (via XXL).

Gloucester Blue is the latest play written by veteran playwright Israel Horovitz, who is not coincidentally Ad-Rock's father. According to Broadway World, the show is a "a black comedy about a man who returns home after a long absence and encounters all manner of infidelities and murders." The production will reportedly run from November 16 through December 8 at the Cherry Lane Studio Theatre in Manhattan.

SPIN assumes Ad-Rock has forgiven his dad for catching him smoking in the second verse of "Fight for Your Right."
