Today I went to see the play Married But Single with my girls at the Kings Theatre in Brooklyn, NY! I did not know exactly who was a apart of the cast prior to seeing the show. I must say that to my surprise the cast included Lisa Raye McCoy, Carl Anthony Payne, Clifton Powell, Chrisette Michele, La'Myia Good, Darrin Henson, Sampson Logan, Terell Carter, and Skye Griffin. The play was GREAT and the cast did a PHENOMENAL job! This play is centered around a couple. The woman (Lisa Raye's character) is in love with a man who is an R&B sensation but is tired of waiting to receive the level of commitment that she wants from him; her man knows how to communicate about love through song but struggles with demonstrating devotion and commitment to her. I won't give anymore details away as you have to go and see it lol! This play has a relatable storyline, with lots of laughs, and great singing! The man responsible for creating this play is named Je'Caryous Johnson. You can join his email club at jecaryous.com to get information regarding future tour dates.
While at the play, a lot of the audience would say their responses to what was going on during the scenes (you know how most of us do lol). My girl and I found it interesting that during the scenes where there were two married people struggling with abstaining from cheating on their spouses with each other; that a lot of the audience was actually yelling out responses encouraging the characters to cheat! That got the wheels turning in my head! As I have said in past posts, society no longer supports/respects the union of marriage. It was pretty disappointing to witness how the value of marriage has tremendously decreased. Maybe I am in my feelings about it because I am a newlywed. I just want to encourage those who want to get married not to lose faith and hope as this is a gift that God has given. Please do not let those who may be jaded due to their own negative experiences deter you from marriage if you have a desire to be married!
Anyhow, in my opinion this play is a must see!
