Miguel has written a book about how to
break into Hollywood and the entertainment industry.
Miguel was recently in the touring production of Love Overboard
They got on the "Love Boat" and turned it into a "Shipwreck"!
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.
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
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

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.
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
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.
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.
