Korner Theatricals will present “For Vixens Who’ve Considered Homicide When the Video Was Too Much,” a new musical comedy from award winning playwright and actor J. Kyle Manzay. Starring actress Melyssa Ford and actor Nawshawn Kearse, “For Vixens” will open at the American Theater of Actors in New York City (314 W. 54th Street) on August 18, 2014 and will run through August 24th.

For Vixens… is narrated by former video model and Bravo’s Blood, Sweat, and Heels Melyssa Ford who guides us through the musical journey of the main character, Lil’ Bit, an aspiring video vixen who wants nothing more than to escape her drab existence with her overly religious single father and become the biggest star the industry has seen only to discover that stardom comes at a cost. Featuring satirical characters like “Flamboyant Photographer” , “The Casting Couch” and “Quasi Attractive Rich Black Host” For Vixens……promises to be a once in a life time opportunity.

“We’ve put a lot of work into this production. I would warn people not to judge it before they see it. It’s not what you may think. I really believe the story will surprise most people and many will find the themes universal. Overall, this musical will provoke, humor, inspire and humor some more. ” — J. Kyle Manzay
