One of the newest musicals opening up on Broadway has ties to Georgia.
The musical “Holler If Ya Hear Me”, based on the music of rapper Tupac Shakur, opened in previews the night of June 2 at the Palace Theatre in New York City.
“Holler” is the latest broadway production directed by Kenny Leon, who makes his home and established his theatre credentials as artistic director of the Alliance Theatre in Atlanta.
The musical is Leon’s second Broadway show this season. He’s been nominated for a Tony for best director of Raisin In The Sun starring Denzel Washington.
On The Story’s Bill Nigut recently sat down with Leon to talk to him about “Holler If You Hear Me” and his work in New York Theater.
