Why See Holler If Ya Hear Me?

Hip Hop Culture takes to the stage

Holler If Ya Hear Me is an original new musical set in the present day and inspired by the music of the legendary hip-hop artist, Tupac Shakur. The production is directed by Kenny Leon, who won the 2014 Tony Award for Best Direction of a Play for his critically acclaimed revival of A Raisin in the Sun.

The production will star slam poet, singer and actor Saul Williams. He will perform alongside Tony nominee John Earl Jelks. Holler If Ya Hear Me is the second highly anticipated production for director Kenny Leon in 2014, with film star Denzil Washington playing the lead role in his Broadway production of Raisin in the Sun.

What is about Holler If Ya Hear Me?

Although not biographical, the story does borrow from Shakur's own legacy by incorporating his songs and lyrics into the storyline, taking the hip-hop sensation's music from the suburb streets to the unlikely lights of Broadway. The musical will include rapping and hip-hop dancing by its cast of 24, and tells the story of two childhood friends who struggle to reconcile their daily reality with their own ambitions in a working-class Midwestern city.
