Stage and Screen actress Ms. Robin Givens steps into what many may see as a new role, as writer and director: though, ‘Joy in the Morning' is a Play with Music that has been in development for more than a decade. Written initially as a ‘Spiritual Memoir', in 1998 Robin called on friends of her's, Yolanda Adams, Johnny Gill and James Avery to bring this deeply stirring and profoundly thought provoking piece to life...they performed it as a Stage Reading with Music in New York at Carnegie Hall. Since, it has come a long way and traveled far to become the powerful play that it is today...throughout the U.S. to the Caribbean and Canada and home again. Each step of the way it has evolved in character and become enriched with talent. RSG and Company feels honored to bring ‘Joy in the Morning' to Birmingham, where it will feature some of your hometown talent. Robin has written a story you will not forget...‘Joy' in the Morning' is a provocative love story that will touch every heart...because without a doubt we all know love and heartbreak...triumph and defeat...and... sometimes we have to lose ourselves...to find, who we were always intended to be. Join Veteran Actress Robin Givens...Singer--Actor Christopher Williams and the newest Talent to grace the stage of ‘JOY', Birmingham's own Brandon A. McCall.
