Take Me To The Poorhouse

Teens Wanna Know was invited to cover the premiere of Take Me to the Poorhouse, a one-woman play written and performed by Nigerian actress Liz Femi Wilson.

Michael Manuel Peña and Nathaniel Peña spoke to Liz and some her guests on the red carpet and got some insights into the world of acting and theater, as well as Mama Hope, a charity that Liz is supporting with part of the proceeds from the show.

In addition to Liz, the people we interviewed include Edwina Findley (“Treme”), Nigerian comedian Yvonne Orji, Moogege Cooper (“King of the Nerds”), blogger Stacy Gardner, Writer/Director Tchaiko Omawale, theater consultant Corbett Barklie, career strategist Kristine Oller, actress Valentina Matosian, and Hope Oialde Wilson from Tyler Perry’s “I Can Do Bad All By Myself” and “CSI: NY,” among others.
