Tyler Perry's "Madea On the Run"

Tyler Perry will star in his original stage play “Madea On The Run” for this limited two day run.
 
Yes! Tyler Perry will be starring in these performances as Madea and….Madea is outrageously funny!
 
In trouble with local authorities, Mabel Simmons,notoriously known as Madea, is on the run from the law. With no place to turn, she volunteers to move in with her friend Bam who is recovering from hip replacement surgery. Bam is so grateful that her faithful friend Mabel is putting her life on hold in order to nurse her back to health. Unknown to Bam however, Madea is only using the concerned friend gag as a way to hide out from the police. But as they say…all things work together for the good of those who love the Lord and are called according to his purpose. Madea’s presence at Bam’s house is just what the doctor ordered. Bam’s family is in desperate need of some home improvement, and it is the only kind of family makeover that Madea could deliver.

Tyler Perry stars as Madea and Cassi Davis as Aunt Bam. “Madea On The Run” delivers a couple hours of pure joy and laughter. With brand new music written by Tyler Perry, the show delivers a finger snapping and inspirational evening of theater. Madea’s life lessons on friendship, marriage, personal reflection and overcoming,leave audiences with some great food for the soul. Don’t miss Tyler Perry’s “Madea On The Run.”
