Holler If Ya Hear Me, the Tupac-inspired Broadway musical starring Saul Williams, will play its last show this Sunday, July 20. It has suffered from weak ticket sales since it opened, grossing a measly $170,000 in its first week. A few days ago, producer Eric L. Gold said that he would be trying to raise $5 million to keep the show afloat, but admitted that it could suffer a premature ending. “It’s week to week right now,” he said.
By Sunday, Holla If Ya Hear Me will have played 38 shows and 17 previews. It received support from the hip-hop community, most notably from New York radio station Hot 97. Morning show co-host Ebro Darden promoted the musical during interviews with Buckshot and Ja Rule.
