Love Jones the movie is firmly placed in my heart as a cult-classic. I often refer to it as the “Mahogany” of my generation. Yes, the story lines are different, but the black romance theme is prevalent in both films. Love Jones quite simply is a movie I will watch from beginning to end, multiple times and fall in love with it a little deeper with each viewing. Imagine my excitement when I heard the romantic, cult-classic was being turned into a stage play!? The play begins its run on September 9th and includes R&B powerhouses Chrisette Michele, Dave Hollister, Musiq Soulchild, Raheem DeVaughn, Marsha Ambrosius and hip-hop royalty MC Lyte.
The stage play was written by Timothy Allen Smith and directed by Zadia Ife. Theodore Witcher, who wrote and directed the film serves as consulting producer.
