For those who fell hopelessly in love with Darius (Larenz Tate) and Nina’s (Nia Long) poetic love affair in the 1997’s Classic, Love Jones, you will be happy to know the musical is coming!

The Love Jones musical will be directed by Theodore Witcher, who directed the Love Jones movie as well. So let’s hope Witcher will deliver once again, and bring that authentic romantic vibe of Love Jones to the stage, just as he did to the big screen. Aside from Chrisette Michelle and Music Soulchild, Dave Hollister, Marsha Ambrosius, MC Lyte and Raheem DeVaughn will also be joining the cast.

The stage adaptation of Love Jones will more than likely bring a very sultry musical experience with all the talented musical acts casted. The All-Star cast does not include Larenz Tate and Nia Long unfortunately, but it will still be fun to experience the 90’s classic through a completely different medium. You may even get a song version of A Blues for Nina, and get to experience “the blues in your left thigh trying to become the funk in your right.”

Love Jones: The Musical is expected to hit movie theatres this fall.
