‘Momma’s Boy’ comes to JAX with a star studded cast

Priest Tyaire’s stage play Momma’s Boy,” has many well-known stars such as: 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; nonetheless there are a few others who make this show the hit that it was when it came to Jacksonville, Florida on Veteran’s Day.

Actors and singers such as: Chris Bolton, Canton Jones, Anthony Dupree, Iran Claiborne, Camille Forrest, Carl Lolley and little person Thomas Harris were also representatives who make the show what it is.  It is said that children and animals usually steal a show, but Mr. Harris will give them a run for their money playing his role.  Also, Camille Forrest (Momma) gives a rendition of “I Look to You” that would have made Whitney Houston stand up and take notice.
Let it not go unnoticed that Nephew Tommy and Thomas Harris stole the show.  Tommy is hilarious with his talking about ‘weed’, his relationship with Jackee and his undercover antics.  The man can preach himself in and out of a church setting like no other.

This writer had the honor to witness the singing and acting of the famed Shirley Murdock back in 2009 in the play entitled “3 Ways to Get a Husband.”  The Times Union Center in Jacksonville, FL is the same locale where she appeared in “Momma’s Boy.”  Her singing of “Good Man” shows the audience that she is just as good and as beautiful as she was some eight years ago.

As you can imagine the vocals are phenomenal, especially when the male singers ended the show with the song “Worth” by Anthony Brown and Mrs. Murdock!  This Christian based play is not preachy, yet it will show you the redemptive and forgiving power of God

There are 10 more venues where you may get a chance to see this hit show in 2017.  You don’t want to miss this play that will have you laughing and may even bring a few tears to your eyes.  Momma’s Boy may also make you take some thought of your own life and what you will do with it.  Tyler Perry - move over.  Priest Tyaire is the new sheriff in town, and he’s going somewhere as he makes success waves to a location near you.
