In the Spotlight Series: Company of Broadway's HOLLER IF YA HEAR ME!

July 5
9:00 AM 2014

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 on June 19 at the Palace Theatre (1564 Broadway at 47th Street), and you can check out photos of the company in the BroadwayWorld.com series 'In The Spotlight' by acclaimed photographer Walter McBride below!

HOLLER IF YA HEAR ME stars award-winning slam poet, actor, singer, musician Saul Williams(Slam) as John, Christopher Jackson (After Midnight) as Vertus, Saycon Sengbloh (Motown The Musical, Fela!) as Corinne, Ben Thompson (Matilda) as Griffy, John Earl Jelks (Radio Golf - Tony nomination) as Street Preacher, Joshua Boone (Brownsville Song [b side for Tray] at Actors Theatre of Louisville) as Darius, Dyllon Burnside ("Prison Break") as Anthony and Tony Award winner Tonya Pinkins (Jelly's Last Jam, Caroline or Change, Play On!) as Mrs. Weston.
