Madonna Checks Out New Tupac Musical HOLLER IF YA HEAR ME

Pop legend Madonna attended last night's performance of the new Broadway musical Holler If Ya Hear Me, now in previews at New York's Palace Theater, according to The New York Post. The show features the music of rapper Tupak Shakur, who died in 1996 at the age of 25.

The 'Material Girl' sat in the theater's third row at the performance, which was also attended by Shakur's mother and the show's producer, Afeni Shakur.

HOLLER IF YA HEAR ME, written by Todd Kreidler and directed by Tony Award-winner Kenny Leon, is now in previews and will 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.

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.
