LOS ANGELES, CA – Next Wednesday, May 21, NAACP Image Award nominated actress Elise Neal will be gracing the Rooftop 3100 stage with her new R&B group, “Assorted Flavors” for a special debut performance and television taping.

Elise Neal began her career on daytime television through a series of TV shows, initially landing the soap opera Loving on ABC and NBC’s seaQuest 2032, before securing her most notorious role on The Hughleys, starring as comedian D.L.
