Although Princeton had career success in the corporate world, he continued to be drawn to his creative aptitude eventually moving into stage performance. As an actor, James has performed in several stage and film productions including The Dutchman, directed by the legendary Woody King at the Atlanta Theatre Festival and the Baz Brothers produced-film, Making Moves.
Drawn by the creativity honed in acting, James wrote his first play The Royal Family in June 2016. Opening to sold-out crowds in August 2016, the play has been performed regionally notably, becoming the first independently-produced play by an African American playwright at the University of Mississippi. Additionally, at age 29 Princeton became the youngest playwright to ever be showcased at the esteemed institution.
Now with additional plays under his belt including Full Course Love and A Mother’s Love, Princeton aims to engage audiences with inspirational productions that focus on family, love and faith.
