Tupac on Broadway Fails After Six-Week Run

    If you haven't had the opportunity to see the Tupac Shakur-based musical Holler If Ya Hear Me, you lost your chance. The overly-ambitious, non-biographical Broadway play, based on the lyrics and poetry of the legendary hip-hop icon, will be seeing its demise on July 20th, just six weeks after opening, due to extremely poor ticket sales.

    The $8 million show, which very ungracefully attempted to bring thug life to Broadway, intended to raise a minimum of $5 million just to keep it onstage, however, even that proved to be unsuccessful when the show never once broke $175,000. Since then, the show has staggered on a broken toe dodging skeptical reviewers and enraged fans who feel the production has simultaneously butchered the artist's beloved songs and ostensibly ruined his good name.

    Although it's concept may have seemed outlandish, if anyone was going to buy into it, it's Broadway audiences. They're the same people who have been paying big bucks to watch cat people sing love songs for over 30 years...

    Word of advice for the show's producers: Keep ya heads up.
