Le'Andria Johnson Stars in Spare The Rod Spoil The Child at The Lincoln Theatre in Washington, DC
Washington, DC, DC, October 06, 2016 --(PR.com)-- In this gripping and engaging dramatic piece, a woman simply known as “Grandma” serves as the pillar of her surroundings. Her son’s family is in crisis, and those within her neighborhood are drowning in chronic troubles of their own. Throughout the scenes of the play, we see the importance of family sticking together through peer pressure, abuse and many other dysfunctions.

Sold out in North Carolina and Georgia, it’s going to be a family affair with amazing talent gracing the stage including Le’Andria Johnson, an American Gospel music singer, songwriter, recording artist and actress. Le’Andria’s career has garnered multiple awards including a Grammy Award, Dove Awards, and Stellar Awards, and, she is known as “Winner of BET’s Sunday’s Best.” Le’Andria is acknowledged and honored by millions across the globe as the star of Preachers of Atlanta on the Oxygen network and her many significant contributions to the arts and entertainment industries.

Gospel singing sensation Shawn McLemore, known for his hit single “I believe” with James Fortune, comedian and actress Trina Jeffrie aka Sister Cantaloupe will join with Le’Andria, providing viewers with an unforgettable experience.

“A must see story, the play is alternately a moving drama and a sidesplitting comedy that will be talked about in families to come,” said Dr. Mildred Summerville, producer of the show.

Summerville and Praise 104 FM have partnered to host a choir competition and the winners will join this talented ensemble and hit the stage for this great night in Washington, D.C. This is the perfect event for youth groups, date nights and family outings.
