Holler If Ya Hear Me Brings Major Renovations to Palace Theatre

January 18, 2021 0 Comments

first_imgSay goodbye to the Palace Theatre as you know it! According to the Wall Street Journal, the upcoming Broadway musical Holler If Ya Hear Me will bring major changes to the theater in the form of a $200,000 renovation. The restructuring will create a much more intimate atmosphere for the audience of the musical inspired by the lyrics of legendary rapper Tupac Shakur, which is set to begin preview performances on May 29. The ground-level orchestra seats have been changed into stadium-style seating, often found in movie theaters, reducing the theater’s capacity from 1,740 to 1,120. The renovations will also extend the stage out past the proscenium arch, covering the orchestra pit. The production will have to return the theater to its original state when it shutters. Written by Todd Kreidler, the non-biographical story of Holler If Ya Hear Me focuses on two childhood friends living in a poverty-stricken Midwestern industrial city, struggling to realize their dreams. The production will feature songs from throughout the late rap icon’s career, including “California Love,” “Keep Ya Head Up,” “Me Against the World” and, of course, the title song. The previously announced cast includes Tony winner Tonya Pinkins, Saul Williams, Christopher Jackson, Saycon Sengbloh, Ben Thompson, Tony nominee John Earl Jelks, Joshua Boone and Dyllon Burnside.

They’re just that close.” Holler If Ya Hear Me View Commentslast_img read more
