Wonderful Black Stage Play.

There aren't enough quality stage plays and films available so it is refreshing to see something done this well. Fantastic stage play, as it has a great story line and is was really enjoyable.

Elestra Henton, better known as Miss E (Vanessa Bell Calloway, Lakeview Terrace), walked away from a promising career as a stand-up comedienne to save her marriage and raise her daughter. Years later, with her family estranged and her life all but empty, Miss E has another chance. But first, she's got to rely on her slimy former manager and ex-lover Buddy Felton (Roger Guenveur Smith, American Gangster) whose sudden appearance leads to the hilarious unraveling of some family secrets. Also featuring Gina Torres (I Think I Love My Wife) and Jazsmin Lewis (Barbershop One and Two), this heartwarming comedy proves that you never know where life will take you!

Tremendous performances !

I must admit that this is the first time I have ever seen the actress, Vanessa Bell Calloway. After viewing her filmography, I find it hard to believe that I've never taken notice of her, before today. Well, she had my attention from moment one ! I was unexpectedly enthralled by this film ! I would only surmise that it was the seemingly genuine and peerless acting ability of Vanessa Bell Calloway that caught and held my attention. Because the format, scenarios, and even possibly the characters strangely remind me of "Sanford and Son" (I never did care much for that show). Sadly, I didn't get to finish watching "Applause for Miss E". But from what I did see, I will most definitely be on the lookout for ANY movie that Vanessa Bell Calloway is starring in.
