Tupac Shakur musical heads to Broadway
Tupac musical heads to BroadwayA musical inspired by Tupac Shakur songs is going to bring gangsta rap to Broadway, The Associated Press reports. Producers said yesterday that "Holler If Ya Hear Me" will open in June at the Palace Theatre under the direction of Kenny Leon, who helmed the Broadway hits "Fences" and "The Mountaintop." The new musical sets Shakur's music to an original story. Rapper and actor Shakur, who had multimillion-seller albums like "2Pacalypse Now" and "All Eyez on Me," was known for his raw lyrics that drew on the rage of a coarse urban existence. No casting was announced.
