Run D.M.C. Goes Broadway!


When talking about Vanessa and Angela Simmons, we all know that the two sisters are daughters of hip hop legend, Rev. Joseph “Run” Simmons, better known as Rev. Run.  He formed the hip hop group Run D.M.C. in the 1980’s along with Darryl “DMC” McDaniels and the late Jason “Jam-Master Jay” Mizell.  The group became an 80’s sensation and is now recognized as one of the pioneers of the hip hop genre.  In fact, Run D.M.C. has been inducted to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame earlier this year, a recognition that’s very significant in the music world.

It just came to’s radar, that Run D.M.C. will be the title of an upcoming Broadway musical.  Producer, Paula Wagner, thinks that ast the first hip hop act to cross over and became a major influence in American music, the Run D.M.C story will be told in a unique manner.  Paula, who’s also the producer of “Mission: Impossible” movies, “The Last Samurai” and “Vanilla Sky”, expressed her delight on the possibility to work with Run DMC.

“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.”

Vanessa Simmons once starred in a play.  Will she be involved in this project?  No words about that yet, and again, will fine tune its radar to let you know should there be any progress.

Can’t wait to see the play, though!
