Check out this week's edition of UPFRONT/Inside Atlanta's Entertainment Industry.

In our first segment, we’re talking to the creative minds behind the new theatrical production, Family Dynamics. The show follows an African American matriarch, May Belle Lays, who is dealing with dementia and the family meeting she must have with her three children to discuss her end-of-life wishes and financial affairs. Executive Producer Kemi Bennings is here along with her partner and actress Tishona Miller plus multimedia designer and producer, Kimberly Binns. Family Dynamics is taking place TONIGHT at Synchronicity Theatre at 7pm.

And in the second half of the show, we’re talking to triple threat performer John Clarence Stewart about his breakout role as 'Big Teak' on the popular STARZ series P-Valley. The Atlanta native opens up about securing the role and why this character embodied so many black gay men that felt underrepresented on the small screen. This is the first part of a two-part conversation.

UPFRONT/Inside Atlanta's Entertainment Industry is presented by the High Museum of Art and Jazz 91.9 WCLK. It is recorded and produced on the campus of Clark Atlanta University.
