(St. Louis, MO) – Mark E. Swinton’s Guess Who Showed Up at Dinner, the raucous musical about meddlesome family and head-over-heels love is heading to stages across America. The crowd-pleasing comedy, led by Cassi Davis (Tyler Perry’s House of Payne and The Paynes), Palmer Williams, Jr. (Tyler Perry’s House of Payne and The Haves and The Have Nots), Tony Hightower (Tyler Perry’s Madea on the Run and The Haves and The Have Nots) and Chandra Currelley-Young (Tyler Perry’s Diary of a Mad Black Woman and Madea’s Big Happy Family) will be entertaining urban audiences with a national tour this winter and spring that will include a stop in St. Louis at the Fabulous Fox Theatre with 3 performances only on March 9 and 10. The show is produced, written and directed by Mark E. Swinton.
The show follows musician Sugarbread Robinson, who, together with his best friend and artistic partner Ronald, embarks on a road trip from Los Angeles to the Deep South to Sugarbread’s hometown in search of inspiration for their upcoming music project. But when the duo set off a chain of events that sets the town aflutter, will they survive Sugarbread’s zany family and meddling friends?
Davis, Williams, Hightower and Currelley-Young be joined by Wes Lee, Zebulon Ellis (Sunday Best and Tyler Perry’s Hell Hath No Fury Like A Woman Scorned), Benjamin D. Sims (The Dancing Granny and In the Heights), Durrell Lyons (Love Under New Management and All Eyes on Me), Claudette Ortiz (R&B Divas: Los Angeles and Tyler Perry’s Madea on the Run) and Deance’ Wyatt (Freedom Writers and Judging Amy), along with background singers Monica Blaire, Olrick Johnson and Jeffrey Lewis.
“We invite you and yours to escape with a very special evening of live theater that will both entertain you and feed your spirit, an evening of great music, laughter and love,” said Swinton (Tyler Perry’s Boo2: A Madea Holloween, The Haves and Have Nots and If Loving You Is Wrong), an award-winning playwright and film, television and theater director and producer who worked with Tyler Perry for more than a decade.
