DMC has announced that the [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Run DMC[/lastfm] story will be made into a broadway show. But it wouldn’t be a traditional show as their story is not a typical one.
According to HiphopDX.com:
“Before we do the film, we’re taking the story to Broadway,” explained the Rap legend in an interview with SOHH.com. “We grew up big time. So when we do stuff, we gotta do it big. Yeah. We’re in discussions right now. We’re over halfway there. It’s a strong possibility that we will be taking the Run-DMC to Broadway. Then after we do the play, we’ll do the picture. We want to do Broadway first.”
How well this show will bring a real hiphop feel to braodway is yet to be seen. I’m thinking they will have to round off some serious edges for that audience.
