Tupac Shakur’s music is headed to Broadway in the upcoming musical Holler If Ya Hear Me.
PlayBill.com has announced that casting for Tupac’s musical is set to begin on March 4 in New York, so interested thespians have just two days to prepare.
Anyone going out for a spot in the show had better have some flow as casting directors are seeking Black rappers between the ages of 18 and 35. They’re also seeking White actors between the ages of 20 and 25 who can play the guitar. It would be good if they could also rap.
Anyone that’s got a good, solid singing voice would have a distinct advantage over the competition.
If you’re going out for a part, be ready to spit a few bars, because casting directors will expect you to rap a song of your choice for about two minutes. Singers should come armed with an uptempo song, which will have to be performed acapella.

According to BlackThespian.com, Holler If Ya Hear Me will be an American musical written by Kenny Leon and inspired by Tupac’s music.
The project is in good hands as Kenny was the pen behind a play about Dr. Martin Luther King Jr, titled The Mountaintop.
