Snoop Dogg is making his theatrical stage debut as an actor in the musical "Redemption of a  Dogg," co-starring Tamar Braxton as his love interest. They are taking the musical on a U.S. tour, which begins Oct. 5 in Houston and ends Nov. 11 in Washington, D.C.

"Redemption of a Dogg" is written, directed and produced by Je’Caryous Johnson. Snoop Dogg plays a character loosely based on himself, which is described in a press release as "a multi-faceted character who is a gangsta rapper, family man and man of God." The musical, which will feature Snoop Dogg's songs from rap to gospel, "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," according to the press release. Tickets for the show can be purchased here.

Snoop Dogg commented in a statement: “I’m excited to link up with my guy Je’Caryous Johnson on 'Redemption of a Dogg,' the stage play. 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!”
