Love Jones is coming to the stage!
With the 20th anniversary of the film coming next year, the cult-classic movie, starring Nia Long, Larenz Tate, Bill Bellamy, and more, is being adapted into a musical by writer/director Theodore Witcher.
The theatrical rendition will take a R&B approach featuring a cast of popular singers including, Musiq Soulchild, Marsha Ambrosius, Chrisette Michele, Raheem DeVaughn, Dave Hollister, and MC Lyte.
Slated to hit theaters this coming fall, The Daily Gazette claims the play is a “refreshing change in black theatre,” and New York Weekly calls it a, “Wonderful cross between concert, stage play, and a movie live on one stage.”
