The film was adapted for the stage by writer/director/producer Je’Caryous Johnson, who previously produced the hit play Married But Single and romantic comedy Two Can Play That Game, according to the Cobb Energy Center website.
“Frankie, Tisean (T.T.), Stoney and Cleo are back bringing the same action-packed, adrenaline-filled robbery scenes and emotionally charged antics against an equally exciting music soundtrack that will have you on the edge of your seat,” reads the press release.
Set It Off, the stage play, will make its debut March 9 at Atlanta’s Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre. Plans for a national tour will soon follow.
