Kevin Liles is indisputably one of the most accomplished names in the entertainment industry. Being influentially linked to the careers of stars such as Jay-Z, Ludacris, LL Cool J, and DMX just to name a few there’s very little room to question a man who’s experienced his level of success in such a wide range of endeavors.
It is because of this that we’re excited about what Liles will bring to the table creatively as a a new producer of the first Broadway production of The Trip to Bountiful since it’s debut as a teleplay on NBC in 1953. The Trip to Bountiful stars Academy Award Nominee and Emmy Award Winner Cicely Tyson, Academy Award Winner Cuba Gooding Jr. and Tony Award Nominees Vanessa Williams and Condola Rashad. It tells the story of an elderly woman who is determined to make one last trip to her hometown of Bountiful, TX despite the wishes and efforts of her overprotective son and domineering daughter-in-law.
“While I’ve touched many entertainment platforms during my career including television, sports, fashion, and of course, music, this was a project that expanded my horizons creatively. Ultimately, the decision to help produce The Trip To Bountiful was an easy one,” said Liles. “I am honored to be part of this team that will help recreate this American classic with the African American spirit.”
Kevin Liles is proof that no matter what heights you ascend to in your career you should never stop pushing yourself to be even greater, and to continuously look for ways to broaden your horizons.
