“I am very excited about Beauty Shop! This play has always been one of my favorites. I was invited to audition through my agent, (No privilege for Kym’s Hollywood Husband, I tell ya). “I did not get the role I auditioned for, but was offered a new role Garrett developed. So, I stopped crying, put down the pepsi, withdrew the divorce papers, and got excited” says James.
James join’s an all-star cast of comedic actors which include Kym E. Whitley, who also serves as one of the Executive Producers, Coco Brown, Tiffany Haddish, Dorian Wilson, Jackie Christie and Retha Jones to name a few.
