February 29, 2012 | Daniella & Letisha Jones-EllisHave you heard the news about a musical dedicated and based on the life of Tupac Shakur? If so, what were your thoughts? If not, we would love to know your initial reaction to the news.
There have been talks about a film on 2Pac for a few years now but it seems the direction has taken a slight turn as casting has officially begun for his life to be depicted on stage. Titled ‘Holler If Ya Hear Me’, the musical will be directed by well-known Broadway director Kenny Leon who has quite a few successful projects under his belt and he is now in search of an extraordinary cast.
An advert went out to the actors and actresses of New York stating the all important qualities they’re looking for, which included a ‘strong facility for rap’, ‘terrific guitar skills’ and a ‘strong, legit singing voice’. But if you’re aiming for a role, don’t let this put you off as theatre experience isn’t necessarily needed. If you have a talent to share with the world, there is no need to hold back.
We can’t wait to watch this process unfold and witness the finishing product.
