HOLLER IF YA HEAR ME, the new Broadway musical inspired by the lyrics of Tupac Shakur was featured at the Schomburg Center's Theater Talk Panel earlier this week. Holler If Ya Hear Me director Kenny Leon, stars Saul Williams and Saycon Sengbloh and producer Jessica Green; along with Marcyliena Morgan, Executive Director of the Hip Hop Archive at Harvard and moderator Dr. James Peterson, Director of African Studies and Associate Professor at Lehigh University as they discuss the musical and why now is the time for the words of Tupac Shakur to be on Broadway.

Written by Todd Kreidler and directed by Kenny Leon, Holler If Ya Hear Me will begin previews on Monday, June 2 and open on Thursday, June 19.

HOLLER IF YA HEAR ME, the world inside Tupac Shakur's music and lyrics, 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.
