Priest Tyaire announces the release of his eighth stage play “Momma’s Boy,” starring Robin Givens, Johnny Gill, Nephew Tommy from the Steve Harvey Morning Show, 227’s Jackee Harry, singing sensation Shirley Murdock, eight-time Stellar award winner Anthony Brown, former En Vogue member Dawn Robinson, and Lil G from R & B Group Silk. WOW, what a lineup. This highly anticipated production is sure to take audiences on an emotional roller coaster, leaving them laughing, crying, and on the edge of their seats. Tickets are on sale NOW for the Friday, November 10, 2017 performance.
“Momma’s Boy” is a story that is based on real life events and is guaranteed to take audiences on a riveting, yet eye-opening experience addressing stereotypes that plague African American families and communities. “I want to reach everyone with this life-changing play, because unfortunately no city, community, or family is exempt,” said Priest Tyaire. While the play reflects an important, socially relevant issue, it is delivered in an inspirational and entertaining way that captivates all audiences.
About the Show: Set in the inner city, Aaron and Autumn join forces as police officers in a town plagued by violence. Autumn is then forced to move into Aaron’s home with her sons. Autumn has spoiled and catered to her sons every need which has earned them the title of being momma’s boys. This is where Aaron’s plight begins to turn these boys to men. In an awkward turn of events, Autumn decides to confront Aaron about his own relationship with his mother. Aaron’s mother, who has resided with him for the past 10 years, feels that no woman can take care of her son like she can. She has run away potential prospects in the past and intends to do same with Autumn.
The big question that remains is how can Aaron turn Autumn’s boys into men when he is a “Momma’s Boy” himself? Through some quick thinking and a lot of prayer, Aaron manages to not only alter the lives of Autumn’s boys, but realizes that his own relationship with his mother requires some much-needed adjustments.
