Famed playwright David E. Talbert brings his critically acclaimed musical comedy, THE FABRIC OF A MAN, to the Scottish Rite Theater, July 23rd – 25th in Los Angeles for a special engagement as part of his Soul Theater Series.

The Fabric Of A Man is the only play that Talbert received a Best Playwright Award for among his 21 NAACP Theater Award nominations and 13 wins. THE FABRIC OF A MAN has garnered thousands of screaming female fans for it's steamy shower scene. More than that, THE FABRIC OF A MAN will be the first in a series of monthly Talbert productions that will comprise his much anticipated and timely Soul Theater Series.

"Why should Broadway be the only place one thinks of for quality theater?” asks Talbert. “We are providing excellence in live performance through the talents of our best and brightest actors, musicians, technicians, singers and songwriters.”

“The Soul Theater Series will be a monthly celebration of our artistic expression. It's a Renaissanc,e or rather, rebirth of the American theatre that merges spirit, substance, and song. It's our stories being told by our people," said Talbert.

Soul Food’s Darrin DeWitt Henson stars along with Clifton Powell in this special performance, along with original cast members Buddy Lewis, Kitra Williams, Orlando Wright, and Cedric Ford.

Tickets for THE FABRIC OF A MAN are on sale at the Scottish Rite Theater box office at 4357 Wilshire Blvd. and at all Ticketmaster outlets. Tickets can also be obtained by calling 213-480-3232 or by logging onto ticketmaster.com.

THE FABRIC OF A MAN is the winner of 3 NAACP Theater Awards: Best Playwright: (David E. Talbert), Best Lead Actor (Clifton Powell) and Best Supporting Actor (Buddy Lewis). The play is backed by an unforgettable musical score, written and composed by gospel superstar Brent Jones.

David E. Talbert’s "Soul Theater Series" will present a different play every month.
