This move marks the first time in Broadway history that the music of a single hip-hop legend will be honored with its own musical. Holler If Ya Hear Me will premiere on June 19 at the Palace Theatre, one of Broadway’s largest venues.
Tupac is not actually a character in the musical, but his music will be woven into the fictional show, which is being produced by his mother Afeni Shakur.
The show focuses on the story of two childhood friends growing up in a present-day inner city as they deal with the day to day struggles of life while trying to reach their dreams. The story was written by Todd Kreidler.
