Tyler Perry was on the Steve Harvey Morning Show recently to discuss his new play, “Madea – One Big Happy Family“. Perry says that he wrote this play in honor of his Mother who recently passed away at the end of 2009. Perry says that his Mother loved Madea and he wanted to do this play as a means to grieve the loss of his real Mom.
Perry also said that he could have turned this into a movie but felt that the movie only gives one side of the Madea character and this play allows him to reconnect with his fans.
Madea is the main character of the play, “One Big Happy Family.” And Perry is not bashful when he says that he went all the way out for this play. He has about 19 semis, 8 buses, 70 cast members, a 9 piece band, and more! He said that people live this play wondering what has just happened to them.
Hurry! Great seats still available! Use Promotional Code: COMEDY.
Tickets are not available at the box office and they just went on sale today. There are some really great seat available and a chance to see Tyler Perry up close and personal in the wonderfully acoustic Sprint Center.

The University of Missouri’s history with African American students is probably something that they wish they never had. But, in some ways, because of the sensitivity surrounding its history, has cause MU to take measures to actively recruit and promote diversity at Mizzou.
Well, it’s about damn time!
The legal studies section of the University of Missouri’s website showcases the great accomplishments of African American lawyers. This is great because it helps high school students see people who look like them in successful positions.
