From the pages to the stage…Bestselling Book by San Antonio Author now a Stage Play

Nina Foxx's

Marrying Up


(San Antonio, TX) –  In the search for a husband, what's a woman to do? Make sure she marries up! At least that's the motto of Paris Montague and her meddling mother. Paris has got it all – beauty, brains and a fine man on her arm. There's just one problem – he's not the "caliber" of man she was looking for.

Tyson is content being Paris' sexy secret lover. He's a struggling brother chasing a dream and if Paris can just hang on long enough he'll prove he's worthy of her hand in marriage. But Tyson is about to face some stiff competition from the sexy, charismatic – and very rich Jabari Nolan. He's out to show Paris that when it comes to love, the best thing a woman can do is marry up.

Come experience one woman's discovery how all that glitters isn't gold and when it comes to matters of the heart, love has everything to do with it…

Based on the National Bestselling book by author Nina Foxx, Marrying Up is a stage play that's guaranteed to touch your emotions. This unique venture, produced by San Antonio-based Foxx Tale Productions stars R&B Swooners Gary "Li'l G" Jenkins (Silk) and Tony Terry, Comedienne Keisha Hunt (Comic View, Who's Got Jokes) Casme Barnes and Texas-based actors, Sondra Johnson, Reginald Johnson, Darrell Grant, Jacqueline Carter…and introducing Brooklyn Brewer.

"I'm excited about the play," says author Nina Foxx.  "After the work was optioned the first time, I wasn't happy with what I saw.  I got my rights back and this is my first attempt at writing, producing and directing.  I love it when people tell me I can't..  We're  starting in Texas and going from there. " Foxx plans ten shows, four have already been scheduled.

Foxx is producing the play in conjunction with The San Antonio Film District.  "They built the sets and we are filming it.  I'll be involved in everything, right down to film editing.  It's a new model.  In essence, we are filming a movie where the sets happen to be on a stage in front of a live audience.  Five Cameras!  I'm a hands on type of woman."
