Theater news

In Broadway news this week, there's good news for shows like Holler If Ya Hear Me, Hedwig and the Angry Inch, and Lady Day at Emerson's Bar & Grill. Plus, the countdown till the Tony nominees is on!

Holler If Ya Hear Me Gets a Star

Last July, it was announced a musical based on the music of Tupac Shakur would be heading to Broadway. Alas, there was no date, just a vague time frame and the knowledge that Tupac's music was the catalyst behind the production. Recently, the show not only got a firm debut date (June 19, 2014, with previews beginning May 26, 2014), but the cast was announced, too. Renowned slam poet, singer, and actor Saul Williams will take the title role in Holler If Ya Hear Me, alongside other Broadway veterans, such as Christopher Jackson (After Midnight), Saycon Sengbloh (Fela!), and Ben Thompson (Matilda). Tonya Pinkins, John Earl Jelks, Joshua Boone, and Dyllon Burnside round out the cast.

Jersey Boys Movie Brings Broadway Show to Silver Screen

Theater news

Like many Broadway greats before it, including Hairspray, Rent, and The Phantom of the Opera, the Tony-winning show Jersey Boys gets its own film adaptation. The movie, an adaptation by Clint Eastwood, follows the same basic premise of the show, chronicling the early-rock group the Four Seasons and their rise to fame.

The film stars John Lloyd Young, who won a Tony award for his role as Frankie Valli in the Broadway version, as well as Erich Bergen, Michael Lomenda and Vincent Piazza as the Four Seasons. Christopher Walkenwill play a mobster.

"Jersey Boys" is expected to open in theaters June 20. Check out the trailer behind the jump and comment to let us know what you think!
