Run-DMC set for Broadway musical?
Run-DMC could be set to have heir songs and biographies translated into a Broadway show.

Rev Run (aka Joseph Simmons) and DMC (aka Darryl McDaniels), the two surviving members of the seminal hip-hop group, are reportedly set for talks this week which could see their life story hit the stage.

"I feel their story lends itself perfectly to the stage," producer Paula Wagner told Variety. "This project has been a passion of mine for some time and I couldn't be more thrilled to be working with them."

Run-DMC formed in 1984, but split in 2002 when Jam-Master Jay (aka Jason Mizell) was murdered.
