There’s going to be a Tupac musical on Broadway

TUPAC SHAKURPlans are underway for a musical inspired by Tupac Shakur. The play is titled Holler If Ya Hear Me (the titled of his second album) and scheduled to premier during the 2013-14 season. The director of A Raisin in the Sun and Fences Kenny Leon has been tapped for the project. From Hollywood Reporter:

A non-biographical original story, the show is set in the present day, on the inner-city streets of a Midwestern industrial city, chronicling the challenges faced by two childhood friends and their extended families. The story is inspired by and unfolds to the music of Shakur, the influential rapper who died in 1996 and has sold more than 75 million albums worldwide.
