K. Michelle & Sevyn Streeter Cast in Hip Hop Musical
Longtime friends K. Michelle and Sevyn Streeter have joined the upcoming stage play Thugs and the Women Who Love ‘Em. The hip-hop musical is set to tour nationally beginning next month and features previously announced cast members Lyfe Jennings, Jamal Woolard, Karlie Redd, Boosie Badazz, and Ray J.
The musical is based on Wahida Clark’s bestselling novel Thugs and the Women Who Love Them and will feature new and existing music from several of the play’s cast members, including Jennings, Michelle, and Sevyn.
Thugs and the Women Who Love ‘Em will reportedly chronicle the lives of four diverse women who form a bond based on sisterhood and their shared struggle of loving
worthless ass men in the midst of some very tough times. Theater veteran Melvin Childs will produce, while Zadia Ife will pen the script and direct.
The play begins its cross-country trek on October 3rd at the Paramount Theatre in Oakland, California. You can click here for additional tour dates and tickets.
