The Sunday Giveaway: Two Tickets to Holler if Ya Hear Me!
And there’s the opening bell!
That’s right kiddos, the 2014-15 Broadway season is underway!
The first entry in the season, Holler if Ya Hear Me, starts previews tomorrrrrrrrroooooooooow night!
But we shouldn’t just get excited about Holler because it’s the first musical to open this school year, we should also get pumped up because it’s not traditional Broadway fare. If you think Broadway just produces the same thing over and over again, well take a look at this.
I guess you can say that Holler is a jukebox musical, but it sure doesn’t feel that way, now does it? It features the music and lyrics of Tupac Shakur, the hip-hop legend who sold over 75 million records (!) and was shot tragically at the age of 25. (Imagine how many more records he would have sold if we was still at the microphone?)
I’m a little jealous that Holler is happening because I had a dream of producing the first ever hardcore hip-hop musical on Broadway.
But this was a race I was happy to lose, because Holler has a chance to continue to push the musical envelope on Broadway and expand our audience. As Richard Lawson wrote in Vanity Fair . . .
Broadway can be a great outlet, one that bridges divides, even. So here’s a great way to bring in new audiences. And an opportunity for that more homogeneous audience to see something different.
So let’s get one of you in to see it for free!
Here’s how you can win two free tickets to be one of the first audiences to see Holler!
You know what I’m gonna ask you to do, don’t you? Yep, you gotta rap. Rap about why you should win these tickets. I know, I know this isn’t as easy as telling me your favorite cast recording, but this is two tickets to a Broadway show, yo! So put on your rapping cap (and turn it around backwards) and write me at least four lines about Holler or why you should win the tickets or Tupac or Broadway, whatever you want. Rap it in the comments below and you could win.
Oh, and anyone doing a video of themselves rapping their original work definitely gets extra credit.
