Snoop Dogg to star in his own stage play, ‘Redemption of a Dogg’
Snoop Dogg is a staple in not just hip-hop, but music as a whole. With the 25th anniversary of his debut album, Doggystyle, quickly approaching, he plans to celebrate in a big way: a theatrical debut in the form of musical based on his life.
The stage play is titled Redemption of a Dogg and won’t depict the Long Beach rapper per se, but more so the character of a “gangsta rapper, family man, and man of God.” The musical is directed by acting legend Je’Caryous Johnson, best known to combine the worlds of urban and theater into one.
“I’m excited to link up with my guy Je’Caryous Johnson on Redemption of a Dogg the stage play,” Snoop Dogg states in a press release. “Please believe you’ve never seen urban theatre like this! With my flavor and his expertise, we’re gonna bring the people an unmissable show. I can’t wait for everyone out there to see it!”
Snoop Dogg will star in the musical alongside R&B singer/actress Tamar Braxton. In addition, he will be taking Redemption of a Dogg on the road starting in Texas on Oct. 5 and hitting major cities throughout the US, wrapping up in Oakland on Nov. 18.
