Tupac's "Thugz Mansion" on Broadway? Kenny Leon Gives Us the Deets on Holler If Ya Hear Me
We caught up with Leon at the press junket for ''A Raisin in the Sun'', and he shared his thoughts on a new show that might change the face of musical theater.
"I think it will change what Broadway is about," says Kenny Leon when asked about Holler If Ya Hear Me, a new musical that uses the songs of iconic rapper Tupac Shakur. Leon will direct the show, which begins performances at the Palace Theatre on May 26. At the meet-and-greet for Leon's current project, the springtime revival of A Raisin in the Sun, we asked the busy director for some intel on the new rap tuner, and he proudly spilled the beans in the video below.
