More than 10 years after Tupac’s death, his music is coming alive in a different way — on a Broadway stage.

Playbill posted a casting call for the musical, “Holler If Ya Hear Me,” inspired by and featuring the music of the late Tupac Shakur.

The musical will start casting on March 10, but it does not have a set premiere date yet.

“…a year from now hopefully you’ll be seeing this world-changing musical on the Broadway stage,” director Kenny Leon told PBS.

Leon said that his involvement began when he spoke with Tupac’s mother several years ago about his interest in doing a musical featuring Tupac’s music.

“I always thought that Tupac was a prophet and I thought if everybody could hear his words and hear his stories, they would see what I see.”
