The Love Shack is a gospel musical filled with exuberant singing, Joyful dancing and strong character performances. It’s the story of Melvin Love, a famous R&B singer raised in a group home in Chicago (affectionately called The Love Shack). At age 13, Melvin started a successful career singing R&B music. Called to ministry, He eventually retired from singing R&B and opened a church by the same name (House of Love).
Fast forward ten years; he is still Senior Pastor at the Love Shack, but is challenged and convicted when a stranger accuses him of having too much entertainment and not enough substance in his services. Pastor Love, now conflicted with the resonating truth to the statement, fears the resentment that may result from toning his services down, realizes that the only way he can drastically change things is to do something extreme. In a hilarious twist, he chooses to fake his own death allow the stranger to implement the changes and resurrect with the ability to finally put his old act (singing act) to rest.
