From the man who brought you “Whatever She Wants” and “The Maintenance Man” is bringing another steamy, star-studded drama to theaters.

Award-winning author and playwright Je’Caryous Johnson has put together one of the biggest drama-filled comedies of the year featuring Vivica A. Fox and Brian McKnight called “Cheaper to Keep Her.”

The national tour will kick off on the West Coast beginning Sept. 18, 2010, at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas. Then they make their way east, ending their 32-stop tour in Baltimore on January 30th.

In “Cheaper to Keep Her,” Raymond Mays (Brian McKnight) splits with his wife Morgan Mays (Vivica A. Fox), and they hire two competitive family members to represent them in their divorce.

While the battle in the court goes on, Raymond tries to get Morgan hitched so he can stop paying alimony, but finds out letting her go like that is not easy.

The play also stars Christian Keyes, from “Madea Goes to Jail, comedian Jonathan Slocumb, and comedian Gary “G-Thang” Johnson.

“Je’Caryous and I are honored to work again with Vivica A. Fox and Lita Richardson on a production,” Gary Guidry, executive producer and president of I’m Ready Productions said. “As co-producers, Vivica and Lita bring great ideas and creative innovation to the project.”
