Atlanta, GA, June 18, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- Torn, a Contemporary Christian Drama, depicts a young couple’s relationship at its breaking point. It originally premiered at Destiny Metropolitan church in Marietta Georgia to sold out crowds and as a result of its popularity, the producers decided to move to it the 14th Street playhouse to accommodate its growing audience.
In a role much different from his days in the NFL, Dorsey not only produced the play through his company, Levens Communication, but also has a starring role. “Many people are surprised at my transition from football to the arts but I have always been a movie buff and decided after retirement to pursue my dream of acting.” Levens says “I studied the craft, took classes, and stepped out on faith. This has been a great experience and I’m glad the audiences have been so receptive.”
This uniquely crafted story is riddled with comedic overtures that illustrate real issues people face in relationships. “We wrote Torn to inspire the hearts and minds of vast audiences” says playwright, Tiffany Brown, “While the play is centered on a married couple, it has a lesson on love, faithfulness and integrity for anyone involved in any type of relationship.”
Torn’s star studded cast includes: former NFL players Dorsey Levens, Karon Joseph Riley and Ryan Stewart (Co-host of The 2 Live Stews), Corrine Van Ryck de Groot (Prize Fighter/American Gladiator/CSI/Lost), Marvin Baldwin Jr (The Blind Side/Vampire Diaries), LaMonica Green (The Family That Preys), Arle Michael (House of Payne), Roderick Minger (Why Did I Get Married Too), Shenay T. Perkins (Actress/Author) and Larry Brooks making his stage debut.
Torn opens on Wednesday, July 14th and runs through July 18th. Tickets are available at www.14thstplayhouse.org or by calling 404-733-4738.
