TO THE POINT is a live weekly talk show airing Thursdays at 5pm, Time Warner Channel 34. It seeks to examine current affairs and political issues of topical interest in a rigorous yet entertaining way with emphasis on the grass roots impact such issues may have. Its audience is the politically aware viewer who is seeking balanced and simplified access to, and may be affected by, such issues. The intention is not to convey the “news” but to delve more deeply into news worthy topics. This is accomplished via a combination of expert guest interviews and editorial commentary.
The current political/current affairs environment has reached a new level of intensity. One in which dialog is reduced rather than enhanced by partisan sparring. The emergence of a multitude of information media channels(expanded news-only channels, the internet “chat rooms’ and blogging,etc) has caused a reduction in dialog and increase in single issue advocacy. The traditional role of the press is being re-visited. Issues are presented in an atmosphere of fear. Ideological intentions are often hidden behind solutions presented as practical necessities. Neither Political party is innocent of these tactics. The political process itself fails to deliver dialog because of its structural inertia-grass roots issues are ignored by politicians too secure in their posts. To The Point seeks to shed light on both the issues and the gridlock itself.
A Play By Greg Lassiter and M. Elizabeth Lawrence

The adaptation of the play, "NOT UNDERSTANDING", is complete. The expected release date is spring 2007.
Born in Washington, D.C. on April 2, 1939, Marvin first sang and played organ in his father's church. He described the immediate sense of reward in a famous quote: "The ladies in the church, they would hug me and bring me to them. Psychologically, sensually, I liked this."
Marvin sang about how he lived and the demons he was dealing with. He was deeply affected by his brother Frankie's stories from the battlefields of Vietnam and determined to respond to the social change of the times.
This documentary tells how he lived right up to Marvin's tragic death in 1984 by his father's hand stunned a following that had come to treasure his talents and insights.

A Play By Laurence Fishburne
Set in Brooklyn, Riff Raff is an urban story of three characters involved in a drug deal that goes wrong. 20/20 Mike and Torch have stolen a delivery of drugs from the reigning drug lord of the area. The play begins with these two half-brothers hiding in an abandoned crack-house, with no escape plan. Tony T, a childhood friend of 20/20, is called in to bail them out.
Themes about lost brotherhood and friendship emerge in the ensuing three-way conversation. Each character's demons and agendas reveal themselves over time, until the play reaches its ultimate and unexpected conclusion.
Riff Raff will open September 28, 2004, and run until October 19, 2004, 5 nights a week, Tuesday through Saturday, beginning at 8pm. Tickets go on sale September 1, 2004. Please call for ticket information.
Directed by Greg Lassiter.
