There's a new theatrical stage show based on and starring Snoop Dogg, titled Redemption of a Dogg, and it's set to hit the road this fall, making stops in Houston, Newark, Philly, Brooklyn, Chicago, Detroit, DC, and more. Here are details via Playbill:
Actor, singer, and record producer Snoop Dogg is set to make his theatrical stage debut in a new musical by Je’Caryous Johnson titled Redemption Of A Dogg. Singer Tamar Braxton will co-star in the show, which is inspired by Snoop Dogg and will feature some of his greatest hits.
Redemption Of A Dogg, which is written, directed, and produced by Johnson, chronicles the life of a rapper who is faced with choosing between fame and fortune over family and the love of his life. The musical will feature music by Snoop Dogg, including songs from his recent Gospel album, Bible of Love.
“I'm excited to link up with my guy Je'Caryous Johnson on Redemption Of A Dogg the stage play,” said Snoop. “Please believe you've never seen urban theatre like this! With my flavor and his expertise, we're gonna bring the people an unmissable show. I can't wait for everyone out there to see it!”
UPDATE: The tour was postponed and the NYC-area shows now happen on March 1, 2019 at NJPAC and March 3 at Kings Theatre.
