Tupac musical

"A new musical inspired by the lyrics of Tupac Shakur"

Holler If Ya Hear Me, a new musical featuring the music of rapper Tupac Shakur, will open on Broadway at the Palace on June 19. Preview performances for the brand-new show begin May 26. Casting for the show has not yet been announced.

Written by Todd Kreidler and directed by Tony nominee Kenny Leon (who will also direct Denzel Washington in this season's forthcoming A Raisin in the Sun revival), Holler If Ya Hear Me is an original, non-biographical story about two friends in the inner-city in the Midwest. [EW]

Meanwhile, Hedwig and the Angry Inch opens in March.

this is interesting because it's so strange. I also wonder if investors think they can make money here. Will tourists and broadway audiences pay 100+ a ticket for this? Won't tupac/rap fans look down on this and even if they don't, will they pony up the 100+? Tupac made it big because of his image as a "thug" (even had it tattooed on his stomach) and broadway is the EXACT opposite

What song do you think they'll use for the rape scene?

if this guy hadn't been shot, do you think people would have come to the natural conclusion that he just wasn't very good?

i dont get tupac. he has a good flow but he just talks about the same old stuff all the commercial rappers talk about. Im sorry but this is one of the worst beat ive ever heard. sound like insane clown posse or MC hammer, its shit!. I didnt come here to diss tupac. I always thought he was very average so thought id try again. still average haha
