Tupac musical to close on Broadway

The Broadway musical Holler If Ya Hear Me that uses songs by Tupac Shakur is closing after less than two months.

Producers said the show will close on July 20 at the Palace Theatre after playing just 17 previews and 38 regular performances. Producer Eric L Gold cited "the financial burdens of Broadway" as the reason.

The show was in financial trouble from the moment it debuted in early June. Last week, it managed to pull in only 155,000 dollars (£90,000) from a potential of 917,000 dollars (£534,000) - or less than 17 per cent. Discounting had left the average ticket price at 38.44 dollars, easily Broadway's cheapest seat.

The show stars slam poet and singer Saul Williams as a recently sprung inmate hoping to stay out of trouble, and Christopher Jackson as his buddy, whose need for familial revenge threatens more violence in their unnamed Midwestern city.

It features over 20 songs by Tupac, one of hip-hop's greatest artists, including Holler If Ya Hear Me, I Get Around and California Love. The rapper's mother, Afeni Shakur, was a producer on the show.
