David E. Talbert's Love On Layaway is a wildly inventive, laugh-out-loud journey inside the lives of three couples living in a Philadelphia neighborhood. First, there's Ms. Willanetta (Cassi Davis), who after a life-chan... more »ging religious experience, no longer wants to have relations with her suitor of twelve years, Renzo (Buddy Lewis). Next, there's Epiphany (Joi Campbell), a single mother who has yet to decide who will be the man in her life, her new boyfriend Reggie (Chico Bennymon) or her six-year-old son, Man Man. Finally, there's Monique Graham (Deborah Cox), who feels as if her relationship with live-in boyfriend Anthony (Mel Jackson) is on layaway and he's making the absolute lowest monthly payments.« less

"This was a great play, Deborah Cox was wonderful, the singing of all the characters was unbelievable. The interaction between the male characters was hysterical. The character of Khalif added just the right amount of spice to the pot without being over the top. All in all a great play about the African American male-female relationship at all different age levels."

"I was able to sit through the entire DVD, but it didn't move me the way Tyler's plays does. This play seems to be geared towards the more serious minded person and I love a good laugh.

"This was an awesome play and anyone who gave it less than 5 stars doesn't know what their talking about. The singing and acting were perfect. This is a play you have to buy."
