Brian McKnight and Vivica Fox Star in Je’Caryous Johnson’s ‘Cheaper to Keep Her’

Hit comedy stage play Je’Caryous Johnson’s Cheaper to Keep Her kicks off on a US tour of more than 30 national tour dates, beginning September 18th at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas.

The twelfth play in a series of critically acclaimed stage plays from NAACP Award-winning writer and director Je’Caryous Johnson, Cheaper to Keep Her stars R&B singer/songwriter Brian McKnight and actress Vivica A. Fox alongside Christian Keyes (Tyler Perry’s Madea Goes to Jail) and comedians Jonathan Slocumb and Gary “G-Thang” Johnson.

The Story:

When a married couple is ready to call it quits, they always want different things. Raymond Mays (Brian McKnight) wants a divorce and Morgan Mays (Vivica A. Fox) wants alimony. When the fed-up judge bangs her gavel, she decides Morgan doesn’t deserve half… she deserves it all.

Morgan gets everything—the house, Raymond’s retirement, and some would say even his self-esteem, leaving him with nothing but the thought; it would have been cheaper to keep her.

Raymond has two options to prevent him from paying alimony: kill Morgan or get her married off to someone else. As ex-husband and ex-love face off with each other, broken hearts will get revenge and hearts and marital matrimony will collide only to discover if it’s easier to love her as his wife.
