Tupac’s Mom ‘Ecsatic’ About New Musical [DETAILS ABOUT PLAY INSIDE]
The Broadway musical based on Tupac’s music (not his life) has Pac’s mother Afeni excited to see it. That’s definitely a good sign.
The Wheard: TMZ
A new Broadway musical about Tupac Shakur just overcame one MASSIVE roadblock — TMZ has learned, producers have obtained the approval of the rapper’s notoriously protective mother … who LOVES the show.
A rep for the Shakur family tells TMZ, producers personally gave Afeni Shakur a rough preview of “Holler If You Hear Me” — the new musical by black theater legend Kenny Leon, based on Tupac’s music.
According to the rep, Kenny wanted Afeni’s approval before proceeding with the show — and he GOT IT … we’re told Afeni was “ecstatic” and can’t wait for the show to premiere.
The musical isn’t about Tupac personally — it’s a fictional story about two childhood friends in a Midwestern industrial city and their extended families.
A Broadway premiere date hasn’t been set — but we’re told Leon plans to start casting next week.
Yea...I'm way too lazy to fill this out.
