Run-DMC Heading to Broadway with Their Own Musical

Run-DMC Heading to Broadway with Their Own Musical
While far too many celebrity forays into the world of Broadway musicals end up becoming terrible ideas, it appears that one act maybe working on a must-see hit, and that act is none other than pioneering NY rap crew Run-DMC.

According to a report from Variety [via TwentyFourBit], Joseph Simmons (better known as Rev Run) and Darryl McDaniels (DMC) have teamed up with producer Paula Wagner for a biographical musical depicting the hip-hop trio's rise to prominence.

In the interview, Wagner was beaming with excitement, saying, "I feel their story lends itself perfectly to the stage. This project has been a passion of mine for some time and I couldn't be more thrilled to be working with them."

The project is still in its developmental stages, so the details are still scarce, but this actually may be a musical we'd want to see. Or at least it would sure go along nicely with that biopic.
