The stage play was a great success, people from all over enjoyed the Epic production. The show was a great testament that hard-work dedication and unity creates positive results. This was truly a dream come true. We first debuted the stage play 6 years ago at Theater-294 in Long Island New York, taking the show on the road was always a thought or maybe even a dream, but dreams do come through when you stop at nothing to pursue the gift that God gives you.
The play is about everyday people. Alonzo is a happily married man climbing the ladder of success. He's faithful and very much in love with his beautiful wife Keisha.
Keisha is the wife of Alonzo, standing firmly by the side of her loving husband. She won't let anything or anyone come between them. Rolanda is the best friend of Keisha and yes, she is very over-protective when it comes to her girl. So you might want to be very careful, 'cause Rolanda don't play that.
Antwan is a waiter with an attitude -- and did I mention that he is money hungry? He works at the upscale world renowned Chez Louis Restaurant. Contessa is every man's desire. She's smart, beautiful, has it all. She plays hard to get, but if you can make her laugh you might have a chance or maybe not. Mr. and Mrs. Whitendale are what you would call "a power couple". They are very successful and they pay the cost to be the boss. Tyrone is a security guard that takes pride in his job. He loves to stay fit and secure the premises. Sister Shirley loves to do yoga. She's a God-fearing woman, but she always has her eyes and ears open. So, watch what you say or do. Vivian is the mother of Keisha. She also loves the Lord. Her husband has been deceased for five years and she's trying to hold it all together. Mrs. Louis the wife of Chez Louis demands professionalism from all of her, employees she's the face of the would renowned Chez Louis Restaurant. Last but not least, Temptation. Do I need to say more?
A message from Marlo Roberson:
It was a great feeling meeting and learning from all the people at Theater 294, including renowned actor Ernie Hudson. My plan for opening the theater was simply to build a place for people to express themselves. Theater 294 has produced several productions, giving independent artists a platform to express themselves creatively. Producing classic stage plays and hosting multitudes of free expression, bringing in artists from all over to perform. "Free Yourself" and "The Art Factory" allowed creativity a place to call home. Known for hospitality and great shows, Theater 294 was in a class of its own. We hosted the Global Revolution Film Festival with submissions from several countries. We shot and produced "Forgotten Kingdom Genesis" written by Jamal Blair and produced by Marlo Roberson. We also had the pleasure of working with New York Times bestselling author and filmmaker Carl Webber and the amazing cast of "The Family Business," and we knew we were headed in the right direction.
