MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, FL — Get ready to laugh live at An hilarious “romantic” stage comedy play ’Be There’, Saturday, Nov. 8, 2014 at the James L. Knight Center, 400 S.E. Second Ave., Miami, Fla., doors will open at 7 p.m. and show time at 8 p.m.
The perfect pre—marital couples, maybe, maybe not! Find out at the premier of the stage play Be There featuring Tom Joyner Morning Show’s regular comedian and actor J. Anthony Brown, Grammy Award winning Gospel artist Le’Andria Johnson, R&B sensation Case and international model and actress Njie Sabik. ‘Be There’, “where love and reality meets” is a romantic comedy about four couples attempting to win a $100,000 prize and an ultimate wedding by appearing in a reality show about pre-marital is-sues. Of course the show instead of helping the couples brings out the worst as they encounter the bazaar drama prompted by an undercover producer.
Written, directed and produced by Yonel Aris, “Be There” continues the professional and entertaining productions Aris is known for. Last year’s production, Just Come proved a sold out hit. So much so Aris named his production company Just Come Comedy.
“So many fans reacted to the title Just Come, we wanted to keep it and build on the brand,” says Aris. People told us you said Just Come so we did. It was a marketing frenzy. Now we’re following it up with “Be There” to create the same synergy that has been successful for us in the past.”
When he began working on a new show, team members focused on relationships and how to make them work. “When you look at popular shows like the “Housewives of Atlanta”, “Love and Hip Hop” and everyone looking for changes in status on Facebook, we decided this was the way to go.
“Whose getting married, what relationships are breaking up, people have a lot of issues. Every couple has a 100 percent chance to make it work. Are they ready? If not, everyone is affected. Another child will become a statistic and another woman and man hurt,” says Aris.
Paul Antoine, vice president of Just Come Comedy is also an actor and comedian and will be the glue in the new stage play “Be There”. Antoine and Aris have worked together before and decided to pool their individual talents and resources taking their work and urban theater in South Florida to a new level.
As executive producer Antoine handles venue negotiations and most of the business surrounding a major theater production. “We need Yonel to focus on the show. He’s used to doing everything himself. As it stands he’s writing, directing and producing,” says Antoine. “I’m the enforcer, the legs and hands. I say this is what we need to happen now let’s get it done.”
Both Aris and Antoine have worked in Independent films and plays throughout the nation and love the industry but want to stay in Miami. “Every-one always says, you should move to Atlanta, New York or LA but why do I have to go to California and stand in line when we can bring California here to Miami in great productions.
“We have talent here and Miami is one of the A-list cities,” Antoine says.” Instead of me leaving I’ll make my mark down here. South Florida I’m not going anywhere and will make sure we put on level-A productions. So people will say what’s going on down there! It gives us creative leverage and an avenue for our work and other actors to gain experience and perfect their talents right here.”
