Due To Circumstances That I Can't Control...

Unfortunately, due to circumstances that I can't control, we've had to cancel this leg of the Madea Gets A Job tour.

Here's why. I set a ticket price for the show starting at $25. The reason I set the price so low is so that everyone could get a chance to come out and see the show. I know how tight things are right now. I GET IT! I do not tour to make a living, I tour because I love staying connected to all of you. I love seeing your faces, hearing you laugh and seeing you enjoy yourselves. It gives me great joy. Even though it's a lot of work, I really don't mind doing it. Because of that, what I do is make sure that the promoter sets a reasonable ticket price and the prices are $25, $45 and $65. Even though I set these prices so that they are affordable, fees are added that are out of my control and the price of the tickets can almost double. Add to that, when you go online looking for tickets, IN LOTS OF CASES, you are being led to a bootlegger and you don't even know it. There are a lot of ticket bootleggers and scalpers that buy lots of shows and sell them to the public for double, sometimes triple the price. I've been dealing with this for years but now with the internet I've never seen it this bad.

Also, there are some horrible people who are pretending to be me or representing me on Facebook and charging people money to do a meet and greet on the tour. They are telling people that they are me or working for me and charging them $150 for a meet and greet after the play.  DON'T FALL FOR THIS!! That's not me.

This is so frustrating! Why are people so evil? Why can't people just get legitimate jobs and stop trying to do the wrong thing all the time? If they put the same amount of energy into doing the right thing as they do in doing the wrong thing they could make it. It's so sad.

To all of you who have bought tickets and made plans to be there I am so sorry. I really am but my hands are tied.

This was the last live Madea tour and I'm super sorry that you won't get to see it live. All refunds should be given back to you.

    I can feel your bewilderment and frustration of people. It takes much less energy to do right than to do wrong, I too wonder why people want to waste so much energy doing wrong. They haven't learned that life is too short to be caught up out of their lives, wasting it in someone else's life. I'm sure you did what the Lord led you to do. What they're doing is defeating your whole purpose for our entertainment. I love all your work. Wish I could meet you one day in person. I might have another movie idea for you (I'm sure you hear that all the time). Continue doing what your doing and being Blessed.

    One acknowledges that humen's life is very expensive, however we need cash for different things and not every man gets enough cash. So to receive fast <a href="">personal loans</a> or just small business loan should be a right solution.

    I was disappointed to hear that you cancelled the last leg of your tour, It was on my Bucket list to see a live play of yours. I can't help but think the cancellation had more to do with Alex Cross and not scalpers.

    Mr. Perry, I was so looking forward to seeing your play. I had won tickets through the United way program and I knew it was meant for me. I had always wanted to see a play performed live. I have purchased Slobodan your plays and movies. But this particular play was for me, see the day it was go perform in Augusta, GA was to be October 21 my birthday. I had told my family and was excited to take my niece. I understand that you did whet you did not to let the enemy profit from good. I pray that one day we can attend one of your plays in person. I sill keep you and yours lifted up in prayer. May God confines Tobias for His good works. Thank you for all that you do.

    Mr. Perry I was thinking that you always do all those touching movies and they are awsome we as your fans love them so much because they also make our faith on GOD strong,so how about you do something based on the BIBLE but do it Tyler Perry style and no not the usual JESUS stories but something that will need us to dig deep in the fans minds because most people get bored by JESUS since HE was perfect they dont really relate to him as much but who are we to judge him anyway how about the prodicle son...that story has alot of explanations to it but it needs us to focus on it,I dont have qualifications on writing,directing,or producing but I was hoping we can collaborate on this one together,I WANT TO KNOW IF ITS TRUE THAT I DONT HAVE WHAT IT TAKES TO BE AN ACTOR or that I will never make it at the movie industry,my EMAIL adress is !!!!!!!!!(I play the role of the son and you are my father,Brandon T Jackson is my brother and you find some white guy that will be the owner of the pigs...SELENA GOMEz is one of the girls am going to lose the money while partying with)..I dont have much of experience in acting but I did play as a guy praying to JESUS...I am 19 years old.

      This sounds like a wonderful idea. I pray that some thought goes into this. If it does please give the young man credit for the idea even if he is not in the acting role. This could be his beginning.

    Mr. Tyler: Hi am a long term fan of yours. Today is Sunday Oct. 14, 2012. I have been watching you movies and plays all day. Sunday is Madea's Day when I'm not working. Honestly Tyler I don't have the money or the resources to contact you other ways. I have to do what i can afford. i believe and trust in my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I have been sending messages from day one since you have had a site set up. I have been trying and trying to contact you. I know that you have personal help for everything by now. I'm not asking for much. My babies 7 and 11 love Madea/Tyler Perry they pray that they can see you and Brown each night. The world is so high tech now if you dont have twitter or facebook its like your really not there. I dont have those things. My job is so crazy Im afraid to get a facebook account you know. Until I do make it I still have responsibilities you know. If my job say no facebook, no facebook. i will continue to send you messages until you respond I wont quit. I dont care what everybody else reading may think. I'm not begging just requesting you respond to me. however I do wish my kids to meet you. Sometimes in life you have alot of dreams and things you want to accomplish. However circumstances dictate different. PEOPLE tell me to concentrate on my career CORRECTIONS..... But I just trust in God and He will answer my prayers. I want a different life for me and my kids. I WILL STAND STILL AND WAIT ON GOD, if i have to send you messages this way every month, until you answer i will do. Anyways Tyler continue to trust in God and he will guide your path. That's what i believe in and always have trusted in him. Life can be complicated, just let god fight your battles you know.

    Madea, I mean Tyler Perry, I am so sorry you had to cancel your play, but I understand. Some people are always trying to ride on someone elses back instead of doing things themselves. My son is 20 years old and has autism and has been wanting to see one of your plays for the past two years. He was really heart broken (although he is so polite, he always hides his feelings when he is angry). I had to let him read your statement so he would believe me. I would have paid anything to take my son to see your play and hope it will come out again when the problems can be resolved. I will be praying for you and who knows, maybe one day we will be blessed and see another play or meet you one day. I am also an incest survivor and work through my issues by creating collages, photography, and I also am working on a play that is associated with my art. Bless you, LaRonda Carson
