“In Love with Tyrone” to Visit Nine Cities This Fall

Cincinnati, OH – Stars Robin Givens and Leon may be coming to a theatre near you. This fall, both will star in Ericka Nicole Malone’s “In Love with Tyrone”, set to make a nine-city tour starting in September. Givens will play the role of Danetta, a wife left to pick up the pieces after discovering her husband Tyrone’s affair with her best friend. Leon will star as Sullivan, a dark mobster determined to recover the money Tyrone owes him. A play about a cheater exposed and a schemer’s demise, the plot journeys through pain and bitterness to renewal and redemption as Danetta rediscovers her faith and values.

“Robin and Leon bring a whole new presence to the stage that makes for a gripping performance,” Malone said. “You get lost in their characters as you identify with Danetta’s denial and fear Sullivan’s wrath.”

Givens is best known for television series “Head of the Class” and movies “Boomerang”, “Head of State”, “Blankman” and Tyler Perry’s “The Family that Preys.” Recently, she has had a recurring role on USA Network’s “Burn Notice” and made an appearance in “Tyler Perry’s House of Payne.” On the stage, she has starred as Roxie Hart in the Broadway production of “Chicago” and performed in the off-Broadway version of the “The Vagina Monologues.”

“I knew Robin was the perfect fit for the transformative role that is Danetta,” Malone said. “Her ability to combine vulnerability with strength makes her relatable to women everywhere.”

Leon is best known for “Cool Runnings”, “Cliffhanger”, “Above the Rim”, “Buffalo Soldiers” and “The Five Heartbeats”. Voted by AOL Black Voices in 2011 as one of the sexiest actors of all time, he also appeared on NBC’s “Crossing Jordan” and was first noticed in Madonna’s music video for “Like a Prayer.”

Opposite both stars is gospel-recording artist Brian Lamont as Tyrone. Initially seen as a debonair businessman, his role is testament that things do not always appear as they seem.
