Tyler Perry is set to bring his longstanding beloved character Madea back to the stage in a play entitled “Madea Gets a Job”. In the play Madea will be forced to get a job in order to pay her mortgage and bills, but once she lands the job, Madea brings forth her usual no holds barred persona.

Perry will begin the tour next week at Memphis’ Orpheum Theatre performing there for three nights, and the tour is expected to conclude in May at present time but more dates and shows are expected to be added at a later time.
