Snoop Dogg to Make Theatrical Debut in 'Redemption of a Dogg'

  /  08.09.2018

Snoop Dogg is bringing his talents to the stage.

The multi-faceted rapper, who also moonlights as a TV personality, actor, football coach, and DJ, will make his theatrical debut in “Redemption of a Dogg” co-starring Tamar Braxton. The stage musical will open in Houston on Oct. 5 on the 25th anniversary of Snoop’s debut album, Doggystyle, and continue with multiple stops across the country throughout the fall. Tickets go on sale Friday (Aug. 10).

Written, directed, and produced by award-winning playwright Je’Caryous Johnson, “Redemption of a Dogg” is based around a multi-faceted character who is a gangsta rapper, family man, and man of God, like Snoop himself. According to a press release, the musical “examines the internal battle one man has between preserving his life-long legacy and losing the love of his life when he is faced with choosing fame and fortune over faith and family.”

Snoop’s greatest hits, as well as songs from his recent gospel album Bible of Love, will serve as the soundtrack.

“I’m excited to link up with my guy Je’Caryous Johnson on ‘Redemption of a Dogg’ the stage play,” said Snoop. “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!”

Tamar also gushed over working with the D-O-Double-G. “Seizing the opportunity to work with an icon such as Snoop was a no-brainer,” said the R&B songstress. “His music has touched our culture in an undeniable way and I’m grateful to take the stage with him by my side, while Je’Caryous leads the way.”
