After many people were excited at the thought of Tupac’s life being brought to Broadway, the general idea was that this play would sell out. Well, according to the New York Post, the Tupac inspired play, “Holla If You Hear Me”, is experiencing difficulties in selling tickets and may close down if things don’t change sooner than later.
The play has performed abysmally, only bringing $170,000, making it the lowest grossing Broadway show. The Post reports that the reason the show has turned into such a fiasco is because of its lack of star power. While Saul Williams is the main attraction, it isn’t doing enough to put people in the seats.
Here’s what the Post said:
“There is no demographic for this show,” says a veteran producer. “Middle-aged women buy the bulk of tickets, and they’re listening to ‘Tapestry,’ not ‘All Eyez on Me.’ ”
