ATLANTA -- 5 Reasons A Man Won't Marry You, the stage play written and directed by the self proclaimed "Leading Couple in Urban Theatre" Willie & Tawanda Jones, opened on Valentine's night with a wonderful performance by the cast on hand. The leading cast members Dave Tolliver as "Dewitt"( R&B Artist from Music Group Men at Large), Tawanda Jones as "Jackie J" Talk Show Host, Briquelle Grant as "Stephanie" ( Popular Host and Actress) and Sheneka Adams as "Ebony"(Urban Model, Popular Host and Actress) Jonna Johnson as "Erica"(NFL Wifey, Professional Actress) and Mike Bend Live (Professional Actor and Comedian) aka Sam took stage and shined along with the rest of the cast. There was sadness, laughter and moments that you could identify with in your own personal life. Those are the things that really bring home a stage play or movie for me.
This play deserves a thumbs up!  I had the chance to speak with the directors Mr. & Mrs. Jones and this is what they had to say They felt it was a great response to for an opening night. It was a packed house. They did their best to put on a great show.  They are planning to come back by popular demand  for another show in Atlanta, but right now focusing on touring surrounding states. They feel the best moments was working along side their spouse, business partner and best friend on this project. The collaboration is priceless. The worst was dealing with such a large cast and having to deal with some of the negatives of it. Also, having to replace individuals that could not fulfill their obligations to the production.  Everyone is asking them to turn this into a movie. So, currently they are prepping to do a lot with this stage play. They hoped that after seeing the difference relationships come across in the play that it made them reevaluate their own relationships or past relationships in a positive way. A lot of times men and women don't see how they are in relationships until it shown to them. Maybe, the woman who always putting men in front of her children walked out and realized that I have to put myself and my children first. Hey, I can't keep bringing different men around my children and before I can seek love I need to reevaluate my life and get my house in order so that I can one day be a great catch for a man to want to marry.  The audience didn't know but at the last minute they forced their son Jamar Madden to be the security officer. He did a great job too!
