Love Jones “The Musical” feat. Chrisette Michelle, Musiq Soulchild, MC Lyte, Dave Hollister, Marsha Ambrosius, Raheem Devaughn and More
Darius Lovehall is a poet. Nina Mosley is a photographer. After meeting at a bohemian nightclub, the two exchange small talk, feel a spark between them, and wind up having sex. But then neither knows what to do. Nina just got out of a relationship and isn’t really sure if it’s permanently ended, and Darius doesn’t know whether to admit that he really cares for Nina.
The original Love Jones movie was a simple story told with such realism that it earned a cult following. For this musical-theatre adaptation, the director of the original, Theodore Witcher, joined with MC Lyte to bring the romance to the stage, complementing the classic tale with original songs that honor the film’s original soul-heavy soundtrack. MC Lyte actually stars in this production, as does Musiq Soulchild, who also wrote some of the songs.
- Musiq Soulchild: In the own words of the 11-time Grammy nominee himself, “‘Musiq’ is the front man and ‘Soulchild’ is the idea behind it. It’s basically me as an artist in this generation, representing the traditions and the legacies of the past soul stars.”
- MC Lyte: This pioneer’s achievements include being the first female rapper to release a full length album, the first female rapper to be nominated for a Grammy, and the first female solo artist to receive BET’s “I Am Hip Hop” Icon Lifetime Achievement Award.
- Chrisette Michele: With a voice that pendulums between graceful coos and gale-force bellows, Michele got her start doing backup for Jay-Z, Nas, and The Game before breaking out on her own with I Am, which features the Grammy-winning single “Be OK.” Expect a set of soulful hits mixed with holiday favorites.
- Dave Hollister: An artist well-known as an original member of Backstreet
- Raheem DeVaughn: the son of jazz cellist Abdul Wadud, his liqueur-smooth singles “You,” “Woman,” and “Customer” sound like a mix of Babyface and Dwele
