From award-winning writer, director, and producer Je’Caryous Johnson comes an all-new stage play that is sure to take the nation by storm, starring hip-hop legend Snoop Dogg and R&B hit artist Tamar Braxton.
A follow-up to Johnson’s Set It Off the highly anticipated Redemption of a Dogg tells the story of one man’s fight to preserve his legacy, choosing a life of fortune and fame over faith and family. Audience members will be taken on a journey of self-discovery that is set to a soundtrack covering 25 years of Snoop Dogg’s greatest hits.
Snoop will make his theatrical stage debut on October 5, when Redemption of a Dogg opens in Houston, TX. The production will then embark on a month-long tour, hitting cities like Newark, Philadelphia, Brooklyn, and Washington, DC before closing on November 16 at Los Angeles’ Microsoft Theater.
“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!”
“The thought alone leaves me speechless,” Johnson said on working with the renowned hip-hop artist. “I am honored and humbled to be able to partner with [Snoop] and make history with Redemption of a Dogg.”
