We appreciate that you are aware that DC Public schools are failing their students in proving a quality level of education. This is in reference to your comment in the play about the security guard must had attended DC public schools because he was a dummy. I am a product of DC Public Schools. Why not change the situation instead of making jokes. I have established a non-profit organization titled "The Inspiring Knights, Pittman-Padgett Scholarship Foundation. We provide disadvantage students financial support in an effort to foster their educational potential. Donations can be sent to 4915 Ashford Drive Upper Marlboro MD 20772

Kelly Price was on the Russ Parr show today saying she doesn't know what happen, that she was ready to come out, however her replacement came out instead. I went to the 7:30 show and my friend went to the 3:00 show, we compared notes and it was truly two different shows.

Someone called and asked me if I knew why she was fired. I heard something about her phoning in to the Russ Parr show, but I wasn’t listening at the time. I saw the show in D.C. Sat.(the 3PM show). And the acting was bad, but the singing was on point. They should have just put on a concert, because the dialog was less then desirable. Even the adlib had a very amateur feel to it. There have been times when plays would deviate from the story line and still seem professional (Tyler Perry does well and does it often), but this wasn’t the case in Confessions (at the end it took me a second to figure out what was confessed). At one point in time, they were laughing so hard at something that wasn’t so funny to the audience they could even move on with the show. I was very disappointed in the storyline (there wasn’t one). At least I got to see and here Sexy Chocolate Levert (yummy, indeed).

I too didn’t appreciate the jokes in the Confessions Play about DC public schools. I think that is were Tommie is getting his ammo from. One would think that after the audience booed the first joke that they would reframe from using in again—but they didn’t. I found it to be in poor taste and totally disrespectful of all the DC citizens that had paid their money to support the production (a Black Production that struggles as it is). They cast all needs a scholarship to fund some acting lessons—but getting a scholarship would imply there was some hint of theater talent, of which they had NONE. Kelly Price and Gerald Levert are great vocal artist, and they should probably stick to capitalizing on their strong points.

I'm just curious did Kelly actually sing? Because the 7:30 show on Sunday in DC the replacement person did not sing anything, which was highly disappointing.

I thought that Gerald Levert carried the show quiet well in Kelly's absence.
Tommy did make negative comments that I knew would come back to haunt him.
Somebody please tell us what happened to Kelly Price. Why did she leave the show abrutly????? We do deserve to know this.

I have seen many, many plays in my lifetime. But I must say, this was "THE WORST". I feel that when putting together a play that the emphasis should be placed on getting good actors and not just big name singers. Because like someone already stated, Just because you are a good singer, does not mean that you can act. I only went to see this play based on what an excellent job that was done with Cheaters. The acting in this play was no comparison. The audio was terrible, no change of scenes, the plot was so unrealistic it couldn't possibly be believable. It appeared that there were not a lot of $Dollars put into the production of this play. My advice to the writer and producer....For the next one, take your time and write a good story line. Second, find real actors. Third, Invest a little more money in to the production. And more than likely next time you will have a hit play.

Please can we just mourn the death of Gerald Levert? He was a great singer and an inspiration to the Black Community! My prayers are with everyone who was touched by his fabulous music.

I happened to meet Gerald Levert a couple of years ago in Atlanta, GA. I was a college student and a friend who worked at the Swiss had mentioned that Master P was staying there. I got my little $15 dollar camera and went down there. It was while I was waiting in the Lobby that a Limo pulled up and out stepped Gerald Levert and the O'Jays. They looked as if they had been working out.

I got on an elevator with them and asked Gerald for his picture. He blew me off. I asked for his autograph. He blew me off again. Then members of the O'Jays started asking me what Hotel Room was I in and could they come with me. They made me feel so cheap.

I promised to never buy any of his albums again. It is sad that he's dead though.

Maybe if you hadn't been out gold digging, you wouldn't have been approached in that manner!

So Narrowminded. I was not gold digging ma'am. If I was, I would have taken the gentlemen up on their offers. I was only trying to get a picture.

Stop jumping to conclusions.

Anyway, what if I was goldigging as you put it. Does that give them the right to disrespect me.
I have a question for you. If you meet a man who is down, does that give one the "right" to kick him?? It is the same thing.
Stop jumping to conclusions and get a grip. That is whats wrong with so many black women now. We give our men a FREE PASS to act however they want and then look stupid when they mistreat us, are not faithful, etc.
