Steven Bauer and Jennifer Day Star in SHOWSTOPPER
The feature film, “SHOWSTOPPER,” is a classic “whodunit” murder mystery.
“SHOWSTOPPER” is a film that features a story reminiscent of the film noir of the 40s, a classic murder mystery. It is a thriller, a spine-tingling film, with suspense, which will hold audiences spellbound until the very last frame.
Steven Bauer, an actor in over 50 films, is best known for his roles opposite Al Pacino in “Scarface” and Michael Douglas in “Traffic.” He portrays a charming detective, fiercely determined to solve the murder case of a fabulous popstar, portrayed by co-star Jennifer Day. The film and soundtrack includes several original outstanding musical performances and songs.
The supporting cast includes Heather Salway, Rushaun Loriano, Jocelin Albor, and several other talented Hollywood actors.
This is the second film featuring a strong collaboration between Bauer and Day. Their on screen chemistry clicks immediately.
The feature is being filmed in several locations, throughout various Southern California venues and stages. Look for late 2010 theatrical release. This film is produced by Media Artist Group Films, in association with JFJ Productions & Andy Media.
The Jennifer Day Valentine’s Day Concert.
Jennifer Day performed with a few other girl pop singers and the Cougars & Kittens female comediennes. She appeared with her amazing and entertaining revue at the Jennifer Day Theater, February 9th, located at 13752 Ventura Boulevard in Sherman Oaks. It was a night of music, comedy and scintillating entertainment. But the fantastic entertainer is no lazy lady. She’s been making the rounds, shakin’ it up, hanging with the celebs and generating a buzz in Hollywood. She’s in striking distance of superstardom and when she’s a huge star, say you saw her in The Scoop LA first!
The event was produced by Media Artist Group, Ron Eckstine, and Sheila Thompson. It starred Jennifer Day, Amanda Darling, Heather Salway, Katherine Olmedo, and Ysobelle, The Cougars & Kittens in Comedy Competition hosted by Jacqui Holland.
The Jennifer Day Experience
Her Valentine’s Day concert was filled with sensuality, talent and laughter.
By Buddy Sampson
I’ve been able to attend Jennifer Day’s shows before and I have to admit, it’s quite a guilty pleasure of mine. Okay, so it’s not a stretch that anywhere that has stunningly beautiful ladies is a place that, well, I should be. And guys, trust me, if you hear that Jennifer Day is performing with her revue, good sense should prevail and you should be there.
Jennifer Day’s recent Valentine’s Day show was no exception to the rule. Although this show didn’t have a live band, the show was still wildly entertaining. For us, The Scoop LA, any show that has Jennifer Day headlining and the lovely singing of singer Ysobelle is a show worth seeing.
The Valentine’s Day show 2010 had the usual Day staples- sexy dancing, tight tracks and an unsurpassed sexuality that doesn’t hit you over the head. Guys, picture a sexy show with Dita Von Teese overtones, and you begin to get the picture. But ladies, Jennifer Day has something for you, too. Her jokes, tracks and sexy costumes will keep you entertained. And your guy will appreciate you later for it, I guarantee it.
Opening this night was a comedy routine with Jennifer Day and Ysobelle. I can watch Jennifer all day. She is a consummate performer, reminiscent of the vaudeville days with Mae West. Dressed in a Valentine’s Day outfit lined with mink, Jennifer gave part of her outfit to an audience member to hold. Dancer/singer Heather sang to a nice track followed by Catherine, who sang well. She took the stage in a silver gown, had a great voice, looked just beautiful and had great stage presence. Ysobelle graced the stage next, dressed in a red gown. She is an excellent singer and her extensive club and cabaret experience shines every time she sings. Her voice is absolutely captivating. Also worth noting were the performances of Amanda, who has a bright future in store for her.
On this breezy Valentine’s Day night, the show, which was produced by Ron Eckstine and Sheila Thompson, had a comedy competition, Cougars and Kittens. Hosted by Jacqui Holland, The Scoop LA judged the competition and there were several very funny ladies, many of which have a bright future in comedy. Many of the comedienne’s that graced the stage had very funny things to say about the name of the competition. At press time, we don’t have the names of these ladies, but will get a list of them soon. You should know the names of these talented comediennes because you’ll be hearing about them gracing some of the biggest stages in Hollywood. After the comedy portion of the night, Jennifer did her big shoe routine, which is always a crowd pleaser. She even came and sat on my lap, The Scoop LA’s Publisher. Trust me, I was quite embarrassed and turned a deep shade of brown.
Jennifer Day’s next show will take place in May. If you miss this upcoming show, you’ll be hearing that you missed the show of the year. For more information on the show, tune into The Scoop LA, www.thescoopla.com or visit www.jenniferday.tv.

Mickey Stevenson’s Birthday Party
CAP Studio, Media Artist Group, and Jennifer Day together own The Jennifer Day Theatre in Sherman Oaks. Lonny Stevens from CAP Studio threw his brother, Mickey Stevenson a surprise birthday party. Mickey Stevenson is a legendary songwriter and music icon. He’s also been in the audience for a few of Jennifer Day’s live concerts. Most of his fame and success came from writing hits for and with Motown’s biggest stars, and Motown’s first A & R directors, one of whom that also came to the party, his long time friend, Smokey Robinson. Day met Smokey Robinson before at the Grammys at Barry Gordy’s Motown party. “He’s an amazing artist,” said Day. “As soon as I saw him I said, ‘hi Smokey, you can stand next to me…and he did!”
Another guest of the party was Glynn Turman, a respected film & television actor. Day met Turman, a charismatic guy, for the first time. “He was friendly, so I told him how great it would be to star opposite him in a movie,” she explained. “He gave me a big smile. “
Of course Day has been known to be shy in front of a camera.
” I never pass up a photo opportunity, hee hee,” gleefully said Day.
On November 13th 2009, Jennifer Day hosted a red carpet event at The Jennifer Day Theatre, where she interviewed music artists on the red carpet, and posed for pictures as paparazzi cameras flashed like fireworks. Her fans got to feel the spotlight when they had the privilege of posing with their queen. Later, for a standing room only crowd, the artists performed and the audience clapped and cheered so loudly all in attendance ruled the evening was a smash hit.
The event was sponsored by CAP Studio, Media Artist Group, Jennifer Day Presents, My Act TV, & Lost Halo Syndicate. It starred Jennifer Day, music artists KD Brosia, Tahir Moore, and other guest artists.
For my birthday, I went to Disneyland with my 2 girlfriends and filmed it as a movie. We danced and pranced all around the parks all day in brightly colored dresses riding roller coasters and getting soaking wet on water rides. It was funny, we may have upstaged Disney a little bit. I have a feeling Goofy didn’t mind, hee hee! It was the most Fantasmic adventure in a sun dress and high heels I’ve ever had!

Jennifer Day- A Multiple Entertainment Threat
By Buddy Sampson
Jennifer Day has it going on. The lady is a multiple threat, conquering acting, modeling, singing and performing in one amazing entertainment package. “Well I’m trying to get everybody excited about me,” said Day, in a possible understatement, showing up for an interview at Starbucks impeccably dressed in a stunning white and black polka dotted dress accentuating dangerous curves. If those curves were on a highway, you’d have to slow down to 10mph, to drive them safely. “I’m doing a lot with movies as well,” she said. “So when people find out about my movies, they look into my music and when people see me doing music they find out that I’m an actress and do movies as well. So it’s kind of like having my foot in both doors.”
Day, as many artists in the entertainment industry, started performing at an early age. Born in Detroit, Michigan to musical parents, as a child, she lived in Italy, the daughter of a Navy man. Her parents had a band, which did weddings and cabarets. There, she had one of her first experiences in front of an audience, by accident on an engagement her parents were doing. “I waltz in, four year old Jennifer, dancing and prancing around, singing, ‘I’m a little teapot, short and stout,’” she laughed. “Everybody turned and looked at me and started applauding.” The sound of the approval of the audience was immediately addictive. An entertainer was in the making. Day performed with her parents on some of their engagements. Later, she joined a dance troupe, performing with the ensemble for 15 years in addition to doing several high school productions. Later, she attended Central Michigan University, majoring in musical theater. “I really enjoyed the things I learned from the professors, they bought so much stuff out of me that I didn’t know I had,” said Day.
Recently, she starred in a movie called Park Bench Parodies, playing a character similar to Marilyn Monroe. “I actually play her in two different eras,” she explained. “I play Madonna’s Marilyn type in the eighties and then the Marilyn in the fifties.” In that movie she plays a Marilyn Monroe imposter that finds out that the legendary James Dean is, in real life, her grandfather. She garnered that role by being noticed by a producer at the American Film Market Festival, who cast her for the part for Media Artist Group Films. “That’s how I meet a lot of producers that make movies all the time and they remember me,” she said. Her manager, entertainment mogul Ron Eckstine, has taken an active role in her career.
Day has completed, or is in process of completing, five films that will capture the attention of Hollywood. One of the films, a Media Artists Group project called, Christmas At The Ritz, a musical comedy, will spotlight Day’s considerable talent. “It’s three girls that are in a Destiny’s Child, Supremes kind of girl act, almost like Dreamgirls,” said Day, who portrays the character of Joli in the film. “So you have the part where they’re on stage performing and then you have the behind the scenes of what goes on in the dressing room- the conflicts- funny, silly, girl stuff that we do backstage. In a lot of the film, we wear lingerie.” Trust us, Day in lingerie is a sight to behold. Visit www.ChristmasAtTheRitzTheMovie.com for more details. Day also completed a movie, an action/drama in pre-production, Silicon Valley, www.TheSiliconValleyMovie.com, by Media Artist Group Films and Aztech Pictures opposite Steven Bauer, playing the part of Christina.
Day recently completed a film, Trunk, done by Marquis Productions, that was recently screened at the Egyptian Theater in Hollywood. “It was a psychological thriller,” she said. “Right after the screening I did a concert, so I sang for everyone that came to see the movie.” Currently, Day is working on a project, a Media Artist Group (www.MediaArtistGroup.com) and American Burlesque Troupe (www.amburtropro.com) film titled Park Bench Parodies, produced and directed by Emperor Frederick Von Seidl and Executive Produced by manager Ron Eckstine. Also, she did two roles in a film, a musical comedy/drama called The Netty Jo Story or How I Learned to Love Holly Woodland, www.TheNettyJoStoryOrHowILearnedToLoveHollyWoodland.com. “I really like films,” she explained. “I like the idea of making a story from beginning to end.”
She desires someday, to do TV sitcoms and with her personality, that’ll be a lock. “I would just love it,” she laughed. “It would be my home for a very long time.” Entertainment is what Jennifer Day does, and she does it well. Expect huge things from her in the future. “Everything I do is mainstream, but I like to be playful and sexy and have fun with that and let the audience take it in their direction.” The stunning lady, a multi-talented entertainer, clearly has it going on and is destined for superstardom.
