I am excited about the return of this award winning production to the Atlanta area titled “Sunday Mourning”. I had the pleasure of viewing this amazing theatrical performance last year. You do not want to miss this event that will move you to tears and make your side hurt with laughter and it just might change your life completely. Read below the press release to learn more so grab your family and friends and come out to view “Sunday Mourning”.
Three Time Award-Winning Production Returns to Atlanta and Los Angeles
“Sunday Mourning,” an NAACP-award winning theatrical production, returns to the stage for two weekends this fall. Written by first-time playwright and former “American Idol” finalist Kinnik Sky, “Sunday Mourning” first returns to Atlanta for one weekend at the Porter Sanford III Performing Arts Center, Sept. 5-7, then moves on to Los Angeles for shows at the Nate Holden Performing Art Center .
“Many great things have happened since I staged that first show in Los Angeles in 2011. “After two years of successful runs in Hollywood, I had the opportunity to take the play to Atlanta under my production company Dazzal Mi Entertainment where we sold out the theater. Now we’re back in the Big Peach, and thanks to Marquis Boone Enterprise, we will stage five shows,” says Sky, who met Boone, when she lived in Atlanta.
“After seeing the play himself, he decided that as many people as possible needed to see this show and wanted to know what it would take to bring it back to Atlanta,” Sky remembers. Boone, an Amazon best-selling author, is a spiritual adviser and mentor to a host of celebrities and pastor of the emerging Fresh Start church in Duluth, Ga. He joined forces with Sky’s Dazzal Mi Entertainment to present a new version of “Sunday Mourning.” This time the show is directed by Nic Few, who holds an masters of fine arts in acting and directing from Brown University. The L.A. Times described him as “one to watch.” The cast features accomplished and award-winning stage, film and television actors Amin Joseph, Rhonda Morman, Roger Payano, Syr Law, Tabitha Brown and Jerrel O’Neal.
“Sunday Mourning” explores the question: if the person in your life does not accelerate your destiny, could that really be who God intends for you?
The Atlanta production returns with an 8 p.m. curtain on Sept. 5 and is followed by 3 and 8 p.m. shows on Sept. 6 along with 2 and 7 p.m. shows on Sept 7. Back in Los Angeles, Wells Fargo joins Dazzal Mi Entertainment to present “Sunday Mourning” as the official opener for the 2014 NAACP Theater Awards weekend. The preview of this dramedy is Sept. 11 at 8 p.m.; opening night is Sept. 12 at 8 p.m.; followed by 8 p.m. shows on Sept. 13 and 14. “I am so excited and blessed to be returning to the Beverly Hills/Hollywood NAACP Theatre Awards. I am also humbled that they chose to showcase my inaugural production during their 24th annual theatre award weekend,” said Sky, whose production was nominated for seven NAACP Theater Awards in 2012 including Best Playwright. The show went on to win Best Supporting female and male awards. Sky, herself, collected the Best Female Lead honor.
Noted producer Tracey Edmonds says, “The first word that comes to mind when asked to describe Sunday Mourning the Stage Play is superb. It is wonderfully executed and deserving of top accolades. As a producer, I am asked to view many projects. Every now and then a wonderful surprise like ‘Sunday Mourning’ will cross my path, and I’m forced to take notice. To Sunday Mourning I say ‘job well done.’ How can I be a part of the ‘Sunday Mourning’ movement?” For many, becoming a part of the movement will be an amazing opportunity. I’m a believer, and I can confidently say after experiencing this production, you will be too.”
Actress Meagan Goode and her husband, DeVon Franklin, senior vice president of production at Columbia Pictures, advise: “Make room in your heart and mind to experience a new thing. ‘Sunday Mourning’ is not a show that you want to miss. Brace yourself, we guarantee it’s going to move you.” Actor Flex Alexander and his wife R & B singer Shanice Wilson says add their own praises: “‘Sunday Mourning’ is not like anything that you would ever expect. It’s simply amazing.”
But the show’s creator is without a doubt looking at the big picture. “There are definitely plans for film and a Broadway run,” said Sky.
In Los Angeles, Wells Fargo Wealth Management Group will host a “Touch the Sky” event on Sept. 8 to introduce their high net worth clients in the Hollywood community to Kinnik Sky as the up-and-coming new playwright/producer.
