Tyler Perry Breaking From “Madea” For Other Projects
A few days ago, IndieWire caught an announcement Tyler Perry made on his website. He announced that he is taking a break from the stage and live shows to focus on “some major projects.” Tyler Perry will finish the fall leg of the tour then start his break. Below is a quote his announcement the website:
I don’t know if you remember this or not, but around 2005 I took off from touring my Madea plays for about 5 years. During that time, I was working mostly on movies and TV shows. Well, as much as I love to be out on stage and doing a live Madea show, the time has come again for me to take a long break from the stage. I have some major projects that I’m working on that will require a lot of my time and effort. Just know that I did not want to stop this tour until I had hit as many cities as possible. So I’m going to finish out this Fall leg of the tour and then take a long break.
Tickets for Madea Gets a Job, which will start on September 20th and run until just before Thanksgiving 2012, are on sale.
Prices start at $25. Perry says “If you have never seen me live, you have never seen me at all.”
Hopefully for fans of the live plays, this hiatus won’t last another 5 years.
