LOVE ON LAY-A-WAY is the laugh-out-loud story of three different couples living in a ghetto-fabulous brownstone who are all looking for same thing-love. First, there's Monique Graham (Deborah Cox), who feels like her relationship with commitment phobic boyfriend Anthony (Mel Jackson) is on layaway and he's making the absolute lowest monthly payments. Next, there's Epiphany (Joi Campbell) a single mother who has to decide who will be the man in her life, her new boyfriend Reggie (Chico Benymon) or her six-year-old son, Man Man. Finally, there's Ms. Willanetta (Cassi Davis), who after just getting saved no longer wants to have relations with her boyfriend of twelve years Renzo (Buddy Lewis).

Powerhouse vocalist Deborah Cox soars through almost every song she sings and the rest of the cast add their comedic and dramatic talent to this truly wonderful and romantic production. Wrapped in a warm musical score written and composed by Rob Lewis and The Movement, this production is an instant classic that you'll watch for years to come.

DVD Cast: Deborah Cox (multi-platinum recording artist), Mel Jackson (Soul Food and Deliver Us From Eva), Marla Gibbs (The Jeffersons, 227) Mykel Shannon (General Hospital), Buddy Lewis (The Brothers), Chico Benymon (Half and Half), Cassi Davis, Joi Campbell, and a special cameo appearance by Alexander O'Neal.
