Their story proves that love conquers all. (To book Purpose Driven Love email: puposedrivenlove@gmail.com)


                                       *Just in Love I: 1 LOVE

1 Love is a compelling story of young love destroying friendships as the result of betrayal, abuse, and unhealthy releationships. It was 1st performed live in it's entirety on Kansas City's radio station, KPRT Gospel 1590AM in December 1998. It was then performed live on stage for 3 nights at Washigton High School in March 1999, Strong's senior year. The play and author were also featured in the book, A Teacher's Cry by Lewis Diuguid. The book is about students growth in school and how it is affected by their growth in inner city neighborhoods.


                       *Just in Love II: ADDICTED 2 LOVE

ADDICTED 2 LOVE is an inspiring story about an interacial family's addiction, relapse, and recovery. When laughter, fighting, and religion fail to keep this family together, they turn to the only thing they have left: LOVE. Everyone is addicted to some but God has the greatest addiction of all: LOVE! This play is a 21st century A Raisin in the Sun meets Miracle On 34th Street... with a crazy twist!!! (Go to News tab to listen to two exclusive radio interviews about the play, cast, and author.)


                         *Just in Love III: 3-WAY LOVE

 3-WAY LOVE is the finale in the triology of the Just in Love series.  A young couple that is not so young anymore must face the reality of their choices as their pasts come full circle to now stare them in the face. Everyone knows that maintaining a relationship that has seen more break ups than make ups is not the easiest thing to do. This task seems impossible when you're trying to live right but surrounded by nothing but violence, illegal activity, and chaos. In this finale the only that can save this family is the grace of God.


                     *God's Love: From Pimp to Preacher

Before he was Bishop T. L. Brown, he was first Boogie T. Brown. Before he founded his church Keep Hope Alive Faith Temple Tabernacle High Definition PIMPIN' Church of God in Christ, he was one of the city's biggest pimps and drug dealers. How did a hustler and pimp so scarred and lost, find his way to the pulpit? The answer is simple: God's Love. In God's Love: From Pimp to Preacher, we see a transformation at it greatest extreme. This would seem like a fairy tale story, but life has never worked like that for Terry Lewis Brown. As he states in his first sermon, "You could've said that I'd end up anywhere on this earth, except for the pulpit and I'd believe you. I thank God for letting me make it through the storm. I just wish my wife didn't have to die for me to stop running from the Lord."

                     *The Pryor Empire

Almost four years have passed since Richard Pryor, arguably the greatest comedian ever, lost his battle with multiple sclerosis.  Pryor will never lose his position as cultural icon, and we can only hope that a cure to this debilitating disease will soon be found so we don't lose another soul that reaches out and touches as did Pryor and his ability to allow us to experience our reality with the outrageous, profane, and conscience perspective that only he imparted.

"I always wanted to star as Richard Pryor in the movie of his life,” Strong said. “Post-Jo Jo Dancer, his complete biopic. No one's called me about the movie yet, so I decided to do this one-man show in honor of the man I looked up to and give back to his family, his struggle, and his legacy.”
“The Pryor Empire” features T. J. Strong as Pryor from his teenage years up until the years of his last breath. He will also bring on Pryor's long time fan favorite character, Mudbone. A young Richard Pryor is played by Strong’s talented 7-year old son, Timirace JorDon.. This will be Timirance's second major acting role. The duo will be joined by special guests performing live stand up, music, and soulful artistry-- all giving tribute to the late great Richard Pryor.

                  *The King and X Man

Two of the greatest leaders of our time come together to change the world before it's too late. One believes in non-violence as the road to get to the mountain top. The other vowed to right all the wrongs of oppression by any means necessary. What would've happened if the two could've put their idealogies and indifferences aside to lead our nation together? If you thought that we would just have to wonder about the great possibilities of these two leaders joining forces, think again. The King and X Man is guaranteed to answer lingering questions as well as inspire a dynamic culture of humility and perseverance!
