Theodore Witcher’s classic film Love Jones is coming to a playhouse near you.
MC Lyte made the announcement via Instagram, letting the world know that she’ll be in the remake of the love story.
As reported by Love B Scott, Nia Long and Larenz Tate won’t be reprising their theatrical roles in this production, but the cast IS comprised of Musiq Soulchild, Chrisette Michelle, Marsha Ambrosius, Dave Hollister and Raheem DeVaughn— so we assume singing will be incorporated into the production.
Theodore Witcher who wrote and directed the theatrical version is also responsible for writing this adaptation.
Witches who only made two films, spoke to The Root about where he’s been all this time. “I intended to have a long list of credits, but I couldn’t get another movie,” he said back in 2012. “There has to be something that you want to do that a studio wants to pay for. I was never able to sync that up. I wanted to do ambitious films with more black people. You don’t get to do that.”
While the play schedule has yet to be released, it’ll be interesting to see how audiences receive it almost twenty years after Love Jones’ debuted.
