Featured Reviews For Holler If Ya Hear Me


Review: Tupac's Gangsta Rap Comes to Broadway in "Holler If Ya Hear Me" - NBC New York
It's a safe bet that a swath of theatergoers has steered clear of hip-hop -- at least, the kind not scripted by "In the Heights" composer Lin-Manuel Miranda -- because it's gritty, racy and has a perception problem in some quarters. If that's you, then "Holler If Ya Hear Me," the Broadway musical "inspired by" the lyrics of Tupac Shakur, is a chance to correct a grave omission. If, however, you've been on the Tupac train all along, then "Holler,"...is a banner opportunity to stand in awe of a rich canon that, it's difficult to grasp, originated with a man who died at only 25. But the two-dozen songs lushly presented...are threaded together by a fictional story so tired, and so often told, that you can't help but walk away feeling that an opportunity has been missed.

To Be Young, Besieged and Black - New York Times
The beats are sweet, and the words often have an electric charge in "Holler if Ya Hear Me," a new Broadway musical inspired by the lyrics of the popular but troubled rapper Tupac Shakur, who was shot and killed at 25 in Las Vegas in 1996. Unfortunately, much else about this ambitious show, which opened on Thursday at the Palace Theater, feels heartfelt but heavy-handed, as it punches home its message with a relentlessness that may soon leave you numb to the tragic story it's trying to tell.

Broadway's Holler If Ya Hear Me opened to mixed reviews last month, but lead producer Eric L. Gold won't let that affect the show's open-ended run at the Palace Theatre. He recently told Variety that he hopes to raise another $5 million to keep the new musical open until ticket sales improve. When asked how long the show will remain, Gold told Variety: 'It's week to week right now. It can't tell you if it'll be two weeks or two months. It's an expensive game, and I'm the guy carrying the load financially. I made a rookie mistake by underestimating how much capital was necessary, but I'm tenacious.'
