BWW TV: On the Red Carpet for Opening Night of HOLLER IF YA HEAR ME!
HOLLER IF YA HEAR ME, written by Todd Kreidler and directed by Kenny Leon, blazes to life in a non-biographical story about friendship, family, revenge, change and hope. Inner city lives struggle for peace against the daily challenges they face in this entertaining and original musical. Through the poetry of one of the 20th century's most influential and culturally prominent voices, we are given a window into realities of the streets still relevant today.
The show opened last night, June 19 at the Palace Theatre (1564 Broadway at 47th Street), and BroadwayWorld's Richard Ridge was on the red carpet to celebrate. Below, check out interviews with Valisia LeKae, Sam Rockwell, Condola Rashad, Constantine Maroulis and more!
