Artists Boosie Badazz, Ray J, K. Michelle, Lyfe Jennings, Sevyn Streeter will be acting in an upcoming musical called “Thugs and The Women Who Love ‘Em,” inspired by the book. Love and Hip Hop’s Karlie Redd and Notorious actor Jamal Woolard will also be joining the cast.
The plot contains four different perspectives from four extraordinary women who’ve built a sisterhood through some very difficult times. Now, one by one, each of them will be asked to choose between the men they love and the life they want. Are they really four strong, independent, black women ready to write their own story and be the stars of their own lives? Or are they destined forever to be nothing more than co-stars in somebody else’s script…nothing more than Thugs and the Women Who Love Them.
The show produced by Melvin Childs & directed by Zadia Ife. Visit melvinchildspresents.com for tickets.
