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!

    Can I come on tour with you? I will love to experience that adventure. The audience in your show need to connect more with each other meet and greet. I can help in that area, encourage love for each other. Also you can offer prizes or gifts to 1 or 2 people in your audience eg. the first person to arrive and the oldest person or to some one who has all your plays and movies. This incentive will boost ticket sales. Esp if the gift is diamond earings, money etc, please incooperate this suggestion. I enjoy all your performances. I am looking forward to see Alex Cross. God bless you. I Love You and will do you no harm . Encourage people to say this phrase.

    NO CHICAGO???? CAN YOU TRY TO COME?? CAN YOU POST SOMETHING IF YOUR COMING HERE, IF NOT I AM GOING TO HAVE TO BUY TICKETS TO MILWAUKEE, WI. I cannot miss the chance to see you especially if you are going to be out for a long time. I see you every time you come to Chicago. I wont miss seeing you this time even if it means traveling to Milwaukee WI.

    Tyler, Commitment is vital to your success. Listen to the obvious, concentration is a necessity in order to execute time and effort. Time out will suit you just fine. I haven't communicated with you lately. I've been busy preparing your customized portfolio, that's in the forecast to be shipped to you before the year ends. It would be a blessing to hear from you before I ship it. Detour Project fits in great with your major projects, a blessing it is. Jennifer, Inspiring Author

    Hi Tyler, It's good to hear you're going to take some time away from touring, there is such a thing as wearing yourself too thin. I know when you come back with Madea you'll bring her back sassier than ever. Good luck on your next project. May the Lord continue to Bless you in everything you do. We will miss Madea, but looking forward to seeing more of Tyler. As always, God Bless.

    Mr. Perry, I want to thank you for your bodies of work. Without them I may never have come to a point in my life where I have faith. I would have never been able to see the true dynamics of life and how every works' message has directly related to my life in some crucial way. I truly thank you for opening my eyes and saving my life.
