NEW YORK -- A musical inspired by the music of Tupac Shakur hopes to bring gangsta rap to a Broadway stage.
A workshop of Holler If Ya Hear Me is currently underway in New York under the direction of Kenny Leon, who helmed the hits Fences and The Mountaintop. The musical sets Shakur's music to an original story and hopes to be ready for the 2013-2014 Broadway season.
Producers said Monday the musical is set in a Midwestern industrial city during present time and tells the story of two childhood friends "as they struggle to reconcile the challenges and realities of their daily lives with their hopes, dreams and ambitions."
