More star power has been added to Je’Caryous Johnson‘s new stage play Redemption of a Dogg featuring Snoop Dogg and Tamar Braxton.

The show chronicles a character built around the persona of the iconic rapper and 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.

Redemption Of A Dogg is set against a backdrop of Snoop’s greatest hits, as well as, songs from his recently released chart-topping Gospel album, Bible Of Love. This will be the rapper’s theatrical debut while Braxton will star as “The Angel” who helps guide him through his life’s journey. 

New cast members include four-Time Grammy Award Nominee Eric Benet in the role of Terrence, Snoop Dogg’s manager who ultimately starts managing Snoop’s wife in more ways than one. Saints & Sinners star Demetria McKinney will take on the role of Shani, Snoop Dogg’s wife.  Family Time star Omar Gooding will appear as Ray Boogie, Snoop Dogg’s DJ and long-time friend and producer. Rounding out the cast is actor and comedian James “Lil JJ” Lewis in the role of Young Snoop + American Idol alum and original Color Purple Musical star LaTaya London

“Audiences will not be ready for what this show is going to give them,” said Johnson. “This will be unlike anything urban theatre audiences have seen. Think of merging some of the best moments of Cirque Du Soleil, Preacher’s Wife, Straight Outta Compton and Back to The Future all into one. It will be one of the most moving, visually stimulating, dramatic and musically charged shows they have seen with some of the most talented, iconic musical stars of our time. They can’t afford to miss this show.”
