I 'm Going To Take a Long Break

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.

Madea Gets a Job will start the last leg of the tour on September 20th and end just before Thanksgiving 2012. It was also very important to me that the ticket price start at $25. If you have never seen me live, you have never seen me at all. I'm telling you, ask anyone who has and they will tell you. Come out and see me and bring your family. This show will have you rocking and rolling and laughing and crying and singing all the way back home. You’ll see!

    I was so excited to be able to see you in person, and I had got a ticket for my daughter for her Birthday. She loves ALL of your movies and plays, and so do I. But I understand why you had to cancel the play in Columbia, S.C.. Maybe one day we will get to see you in person. You really know how too make people laugh even when they don't feel like it. But I love the way you get people's attention to what you are trying to tell them in a loveing way with out hurting them, the truth never hurts when it comes in the way you do it. May God keep you in his loveing and Bless you. Thanks for all the laughs. Alice Perry

    We love you here. Me and my friend were looking forward to you coming to Seattle, but we understand your reasoning. You have to do what you have to do. I do know that my friend in her wonderful days of dreaming - she imagines you- Madea being a guest at her wedding. Sure would be nice if we could surprise her on that special day. Not sure when it is yet but I wll let you know and maybe just maybe you can surprise here and DO YOU. God bless you Tyler Perry- MADEA. PS She wants MADEA at the receptionist- you know she dont want nothing to upstage the BRIDE> LOL Again we love you and all that you do and stand for. By the way no one loves you more than us.
