Tickets are now available for Holler If Ya Hear Me, the new musical inspired by the work of Tupac Shakur. Starring Tony winner Tonya Pinkins and award-winning slam poet Saul Williams, the show will begin previews on June 2 at Broadway's Palace Theatre, with opening night set for for June 19.
Written by Todd Kreidler and directed by Kenny Leon, the non-biographical story of Holler If Ya Hear Me focuses on two childhood friends living in a poverty-stricken Midwestern industrial city, struggling to realize their dreams. The production will feature songs from throughout the late rap icon's career, including "California Love," "Keep Ya Head Up," "Me Against the World" and, of course, the title song.
The cast also features Christopher Jackson, Saycon Sengbloh, Ben Thompson, Tony nominee John Earl Jelks, Joshua Boone and Dyllon Burnside.
