Run-dmc Heading To Broadway
Legendary hip-hop group RUN-DMC is to be immortalised on stage in a new Broadway musical.
Tom Cruise's former producing partner Paula Wagner is in talks to create a show about the rappers' rise to fame.
Wagner admits she has long wanted to bring Run-DMC to the stage and is delighted the project seems to be moving forward at last.
She tells Variety.com, "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 It's Like That hitmakers split in 2002 following the murder of longtime member Jason 'Jam-Master Jay' Mizell.
