A Night On The Town With The Queens! Copeland’s Restaurant and Momma’s Boy Play Were a Delight!

On occasion, my hubby Tony and I get “The Queens” together.  It so happens that my mother-in-love was in town because Savannah was evacuated due to Hurricane Irma. At the last minute, he asked if I wanted to take our beautiful moms to a play that he had heard about. He said that this writer had written several plays and thought we all might like this one. I thought it was a wonderful idea!

Prior to the play, we decided to go to Copeland’s of New Orleans Restaurant to dine.  Their cuisine is delectable.  Everything on the menu looked so appetizing. My mom and hubby settled on Crab Cakes and Shrimp Alfredo.  I opted for the BBQ Shrimp Boil and my mother-in-love chose the Prime Top Sirloin.  Everything was so flavorsome and delicious! I really love the ambiance and the staff is so friendly!  If you’ve got something special going on, this restaurant is ideal. If you are just hanging out with family and friends, this a great eatery to visit.  Dressy or casual, you will fit right in! Don’t forget to stop at the Cheesecake Bakery counter! Click on this link to check out their website:

We love plays and really enjoyed “Momma’s Boy” presented by Priest Tyaire. The entertaining production, spotlighting the melodious gifts of nearly all of the actors and comedic prowess of Tyaire, was quite crowd pleasing. The star-studded cast includes  Johnny Gill, Robin Givens, Jackee’ Harry, Nephew Tommy, Priest Tyaire, Shirley Murdock, Anthony J. Brown, Dawn Robinson, Gary “Lil G” Jenkins, Chris Bolton, Thomas Harris, Camille Forrest, Anthony Dupree, Carl Lolly, Canton Jones and Iran Claiborne  (Iran DShun).  You will even find a few celebrity surprises in various cities!

I thought that it was a special touch to have the actors come out afterwards to greet guests and sign autographs! I was able to get a few great selfies with several of the SUPER supporting cast members!  They were really kind.  I had a chance to tell them how much I enjoyed their performances! I’ve listed their names and social media handles below.  When you get a chance, be sure to follow them!
