Love Overboard  
Miguel was recently in the touring production of  Love Overboard 

 

 

They got on the "Love Boat" and turned it into a "Shipwreck"!

Synopsis
          A “NOT-SO-ROMANTIC” comedy stage play!
Honesty Can be Brutal!

The S.S. Love & Happiness is the cruise ship known for making love connections and romantic dreams come true. But there may be no love left by the time this boat docks.
Who’s Onboard?

Our Captain, who seems more concerned with stalking women than steering the ship, a Married Couple hoping to re-discover the fire they once had, a Divorced Man looking to forget the past and celebrate his new independence, an Overly- Spiritual Woman who is determined to wait for Mr. Right, and her Best Friend who prefers dating men with a ring on their finger. With this cast of passengers and many more, our ship may be turned upside down before it ever sets sail.

Somebody’s about to be tossed overboard!

Tempers flare and an all-out battle of the sexes ensues as the captain tests his unknowing passengers by slowly uncovering their dysfunction and encouraging them to be brutally honest with each other. As all their relationships are put through the fire and one wife “accidentally” gets pushed overboard by her fed-up husband, the Love Boat seems headed for a shipwreck. Before this cruise ends, will relationships be mended and marriages be saved or will the trip that seemed to be a dream vacation turn out to be a total disaster.

Why can’t we all just get along? For the sake of the S.S. Love & Happiness… let’s hope they figure it out.

Synopsis
What happens when friends cross the line and become lovers? Lies fly, emotions erupt, and the stage is set for a totally uncensored, hilarious, and outrageously entertaining adventure in seduction, betrayal, heartbreak, revenge, and oh-so-sweet true love.

Shelby Daniels and her best friend Debra Mitchell has just gotten off the sex-before-marriage merry-go-round with men. Each has gone looking for love, found love, lost love, and at this point, sworn off men forever…

Until Debra meets Leonard DuBois, an aspiring stand–up comedian, who tries to laugh his way into her heart. But the laughter stops when he is forced to confront some hurdles of his own. Debra has devoted her mind, body, heart and soul to God. So, if he wants to ride with her, he’ll have to produce the ring.
This leaves him questioning what matters most-and whether he’s ready for the love of a good woman.

In the meantime, the man-less Shelby, a feisty, nosy, attitude packing flight attendant, keeps intervening in Debra’s business. Needing someone to run interference and get rid of Shelby, Leonard calls on his best buddy

Tyrel Williams… Tyrel, a sexy and charming computer software designer, keeps finding himself unable to design the perfect woman. On the rebound, Shelby locked her heart in a vault. When Tyrel finds the key, the attraction is instant and so are the consequences. Their relationship moves at warp speed, leaving Shelby confronting a decision that could turn her whole life around and break both of their hearts. As a result,friendships falls by the wayside, jealousy come into play, and sisterhood is torn apart, as lies pin Shelby against the wall.

It takes a tragedy on a grand scale to reunite lovers destined for each other and teach both couples that friendship is perhaps the most valuable gift they’ve been given. “Friends and Lovers”…A hilarious tale of friendship, love, and faith that speaks directly to the heart.

Juwanna Mann trivia
