Je’Caryous Johnson’s new hit comedy stage play, Cheaper to Keep Her, has been playing to sold out audiences in the United States, and now it’s coming to Toronto’s Massey Hall Theatre on Tuesday, October 26, 2010 courtesy of UC LIVE Inc. promotions.
Cheaper to Keep Her is a romantic comedy stage play featuring an all-star cast that includes R&B sensation Brian McKnight and multi-faceted actress Vivica A. Fox, Christian Keyes (lead actor – Tyler Perry’s Madea Goes to Jail) and comedians Jonathan Slocumb and Gary “G-Thang” Johnson.
Grammy award R&B crooner McKnight is not only receiving rave reviews for his acting, but his performance of classic hits and new songs is also thrilling fans.
Cheaper to Keep Her is the 12th play in a series of box office smash hits from the NAACP Award-winning writer and director, Je’Caryous Johnson.
“We are very thankful to the fans and to everyone who came out to see Cheaper to Keep Her in the debut cities,” said Johnson, CEO and chairman of I’m Ready Productions. “The positive feedback was overwhelming, so much so, we have listened and are bringing the play to multiple cities across the nation. I hope everyone continues to enjoy the play and are blessed by the message.”
Cheaper to Keep Her is the story of a seemingly perfect marriage in the midst of collapse. Raymond Mays (Brian McKnight) splits with his wife Morgan (Vivica A. Fox). When Raymond hires his best friend, Joey, to be his lawyer, and Morgan hires her catty cousin, Koren, as counsel, a legal boxing match explodes over their divorce. When Morgan walks away with everything, Raymond and Joey scheme to stop paying alimony by getting Morgan hitched again.
But did Raymond ever stop loving Morgan? Can he stand to see her with someone else? As ex-husband and ex-lover face off with each other, broken hearts will get revenge, karma could kill, and infidelity can become infectious as hearts and marital matrimony collide only to discover whether it’s really “Cheaper To Keep Her.”
In an era of monthly celebrity marriage breakups and scandalous behaviours, Cheaper to Keep Her is a very timely and must-see stage play.
