Celebrating the 20th
anniversary of the popular romantic comedy, the stage play takes the
essence of the film and tells its story through music. Fusing
chart-topping hits and fan favorite songs from the music artists, along
with a few original songs,Love Jones The Musical, will be a transformative experience for the audience.
Produced by veteran theater producer Melvin Childs of Produced By Faith with stage play written by Timothy Allen Smith and directed by Zadia Ife, Love Jones The Musical, tells the universal and timeless story of love, heartbreak and starting over. The film’s original writer and director, Theodore Witcher, serves as consulting producer.
“We are really excited about this opportunity to break new ground with
this musical, as it relates to African American offerings in theater
around the country,” says producer Melvin Childs. “Our team has created
something truly special and sincerely hope to live up to the
expectations of the fans of the iconic film, Love Jones.”
Love Jones was originally released on March
14, 1997 and became a cult classic film that captured the hearts and
imagination of an entire generation. The soundtrack was equally
impressive with a blend of neo-soul and R&B hits that fueled the
90s. The film was written and directed by Theodore Witcher and tells the
classic, yet gritty, love story of Darius Lovehall (an up & coming
writer and self-proclaimed renaissance man) and Nina Mosley (an aspiring
photographer). The film starred Larenz Tate, Nia Long, Isaiah
Washington, Bill Bellamy and Lisa Nicole Carson.
Set in Chicago, Darius (Larenz Tate) and Nina (Nia Long) meet in a
nightclub, where an unassuming open mic event quickly turns into an
explosive spoken word give and take that leaves the audience speechless.
From the moment they lay eyes on each other, Darius and Nina’s lives
are turned upside down. Their mutual attraction is obvious, but they are
both on the rebound from unfinished previous relationships and neither
of them are ready for “the real thing.” As much and as hard as they try
and fight it, neither of them can resist what is pulling them together.
It’s a passion, an obsession…a ‘love jones’ that comes along once in a

Trent Reznor, Atticus Ross,Gustavo Santaolalla and Mogwaihave created music for the feature documentary Before the Flood. The film, a call to action from longtime environmental advocate Leonardo DiCaprio and actor/filmmaker/Oscar-winning documentary producer Fisher Stevens (The Cove, Racing Extinction), will have its world premiere today at the Toronto International Film Festival.
Acting as music supervisors for the first time, Reznor and Ross worked in tandem with Santaolalla and Mogwai to compose a blend of music with a cohesive vision, resulting in the score for Before the Flood along with an album to be released in October. Details to follow.
"The incredible music composed for Before the Flood was one of the most unique collaborations I can think of in scoring a film," said Fisher Stevens.
"Reznor, Ross, Santaolalla and Mogwai become one voice in capturing the
emotion and feeling of Leonardo DiCaprio's journey to understanding
where we stand in terms of climate change, how far gone we are, what can
we do about solving this issue and why people are still resistant to
understanding how important it is."
Before the Flood
will be in theaters in New York City and Los Angeles beginning October
21. The film will air globally - in 171 countries and 45 languages - on
the National Geographic Channel starting October 30.

This year at the festivals Amdur Productions has started a new
charity initiative called the Green Ribbon Project. The project connects
the festival with an important cause and aims to stimulate art buying
at the festival. Participating artists put a green ribbon on a piece of
their choice in their booth and when the piece is sold the artist agrees
to give 10% of the proceeds to the
PADS Lake County, which is the dedicated charity for the Deer Park Art Show.
