Priest Tyaire Presents: "Mrs. Independent"
If a woman becomes the primary breadwinner of the family, is the husband still the head of the household? That's the thesis of Mrs. Independent, the latest drama from actor/playwright Priest Tyaire. In the titular role, movie star Robin Givens plays Carleena, a loving wife who's recently worked her way up the corporate ladder as an attorney with a six-figure salary. Meanwhile, her husband Trey (played by Tyaire) makes $40,000 a year as a mechanic. This financial gap not only robs Trey of his pride, but adds considerable tension to the marriage. Can Trey satisfy his wife, who now feels superior to him both intellectually and financially? This question is answered by an all-star cast that includes BET Award-winner and New Jack City alumnus Christopher Williams, Grammy-nominated actor/singer Tony Grant of the group Az Yet, and Dove Award-nominated singer/actress Shirley Murdock.
One of many vaudeville and movie palaces that sprung up in the 1920s, the Warner Theatre today drops jaws in much the same way it did in its infancy: with glittering chandeliers, gilded ceilings, and red-felt seats. Yet before transforming into its modern incarnation, it served as a film-only venue with such luxuries as a rooftop garden and a ballroom in the basement. The Warner even had a dance troupe akin to the Rockettes—called the Roxyettes—who would high-kick before and after the screen lit up.
After falling into disarray in the '70s, the Warner became a concert venue, saving it from the wrecking ball but forcing it to require a complete renovation in 1989 to remove years of grime and stray musical notes lodged between seat cushions. At the reopening gala, a host of stars performed, including Frank Sinatra in what would prove to be his last DC show.
