Tupac Shakur‘s life’s work has inspired countless music artists. Now it’s inspired a new musical, Holler if Ya Hear Me, which will premiere on Broadway at the Palace Theater later this year.
According to The New York Times, the upcoming show isn’t a musical biography about the late West Coast rapper. Rather, its an original tale about “friendship, family, revenge, change and hope” as poverty stricken, inner-city residents cope with the struggles of life.
Musical backdrops for the show will include Tupac’s biggest songs, including “Me Against the World,” “California Love,” and “Keep Ya Head Up,” among others.
The $8 million production will premiere on May 26, with the gala opening night scheduled for June 19.
