Tupac Shakur-Inspired Musical Headed to Broadway

Tupac Shakur may have died over a decade ago, but his legacy continues to inspire countless artistic efforts. And now that inspiration has reached Broadway.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, a new show is currently underway and should hit the stage for the 2013-2014 Broadway season. The musical, ‘Holler If Ya Hear Me,’ will be co-produced by Pac’s mama, Afeni Shakur, and directed by big shot Broadway legend Kenny Leon.

Although the show will not be autobiographical, the plot follows some of the themes expressed in Tupac’s lyrics and will feature his music.

The show will take place in the present day, “on the inner-city streets of a Midwestern industrial city.” Two childhood friends and their extended families will be the center of the musical as well as the challenges they face.
