)-- Denman Turner Entertainment Group (DTEG, Inc.) and Rivers at Rehoboth is proud to present Son of a Preacher Man, written by Vascola Stoney with one performance on August 1, 2014, 7:30 PM at Church of St. Paul and St. Andrew.
Every father has hopes for his son. A father dreams his son will someday be a successful doctor, lawyer, athlete or even a preacher. Son of a Preacher Man explores what happens when a father’s disappointment leads down the road of shame when his eldest son doesn’t quite follow the path he has laid out for him. Barnes Jr. (Duane Burress), a preacher’s son from a generation of preachers, struggles with living up to his father’s expectations after falling in love with another man. He is ultimately forced to choose between the callings placed on his life or to follow his own heart, alienating his father and maybe even God.
Son of a Preacher Man is directed by Dominique Denman, with an adaption by Denman and Kellie Turner and is inspired by the life of Andre Brown. Denman directed the premiere production of Son of a Preacher Man for And Company Theater in Philadelphia, PA and the New York premiere at The Riverside Theater in 2012. Denman is one of the Executive Producers for the new musical Stormy which is in development for Broadway.
Son of a Preacher Man features Duane Burress and the cast includes Angelique Chapman, Geraldine Flood, Leroy Graham, La Trina Rice, Douglas Sanders, Tasha Michelle, Miriam Tabb, Nefertiti Warren and Deon Williams.
Son of a Preacher Man will hold one performance on Friday, August 1, 2014, 7:30 PM at Church of St. Paul and St. Andrew, located at 263 W 86th St (Broadway and West End Aves.), New York, NY 10024.
