Written and produced by Danny Hodges, the stage play, "King Solomon Lives", is translated through the memory of a 10 year old young boy.
This story begins in 1996. A young mother, Mable and her son David live in an inner-city project in Baltimore, Maryland. After his parents divorce, young David struggles to make sense of life. He and his mom are always at odds and one night they have a big blow up, which his grandfather witnesses. Grandpa goes into David's room and decides to share the love story of King Solomon and the Queen of Sheba. With the story on his mind, young David falls asleep.
The audience is transported back to the year 976 B.C. as the young child begins to dream the epic story he just heard. Suddenly, the stage explodes in vibrant colors and brightly adorned costumes worn by 20 exotic dancers, conveying not only the romance, but the valuable messages of love, trust and family values.
