RELIEING ON FAMILY to Play Grand Theatre of The Producers Club, 2/28 & 3/1
J&M Productions, while starting off as a small partnership between two friends and colleagues, Joshua Hunter and Marcus Graham, has left its mark on New York and Off-Broadway theatres alike. Sold out shows, and successful original works are the feats that J&M have continuously accomplished. Currently, J&M Productions has produced three stage productions with their fourth coming set to premiere in February of 2014: "reLIEing on Family" by Marcus Graham.
"reLIEing on Family" centers around the multi-racial Johnson family, who come together for the Thanksgiving holiday in 2007. They have not all been under the same roof since the head of household Anthony Johnson died in 2004. Each of the family members has a unique personality and conflict which when put together, creates a dynamic atmosphere of drama, but also dives deeper into topics such as infidelity, substance abuse, love, loss and more.
Rounding out the cast are Linda Browne, Marcus Graham, Naomi Taylor, Julio Toledo, Amanda Treppa, Coleman Annison, John Michael Mills, Teddy Kalin, Bryan Salzar, Chet Conaty, Anna Hudson and Jonathan Cruz.
"reLIEing on Family" is set to open off-Broadway in the Grand Theatre of The Producers Club (358 West 44th Street) for two performances only. (Februrary 28th and March 1st). For tickets, visit online at http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/569006.
Produced by Joshua Hunter, this production features direction by Jonathan Cruz. The production stage manager is Cillas Chlarentin.
