We recently caught up with Jamillah Lamb, producer and author to find out more about what she does and how she’s making an impact in New York City.
What do you do?
I am an author of “Perfect Combination: Seven Key Ingredients to Happily Living & Loving Together” (with my husband David Lamb) a theater producer, including producing the long running off-Broadway play Platanos Y Collard Greens, and a mom of a 4 year old amazing daughter. I am a woman of many, many hats, handling many details big and small.
Why do you do it?
I do it because I love doing what I can to impact people’s lives, whether it is through the theater experience or in sharing my relationship experience. I love the challenge of putting on a show that people will love. Also I love being in business with and partners with my best friend, my husband, David. There is a thrill in seeing an audience’s reaction, I got goose bumps of excitement the first night of the show and I still get them. And as an author I wanted to share my experience of being in a happy and loving relationship with my husband.
Why should people care?
Because my work makes people laugh and leaves them feeling inspired, all while blending, politics, history and romance. And also my story of how I became a producer shows that if you have a dream you can pursue it. We started our company, I was a Vice-President at Citibank, with no theater background, with the plan of performing for one weekend and now here we are nine years later still going. And from my experience working 24/7 with my husband I learned a lot about how to have a healthy and happy relationship, which is something I think that everyone strives for and in book “Perfect Combination” I share my story of emotional baggage that I had to overcome, things that I still struggle with and what I have done to make sure that my relationship continues to grow.
