Tyler Perry Announces Dates For Madea’s Farewell Stage Play Tour

Goodbye, Madea.

Tyler Perry 's Madea Franchise has resonated with its diverse audience with films exploring poverty, race, sexual assault, love and more. But late last month (Oct. 29), Tyler Perry announced that he would be bringing the Madea Franchise to the halt with a final movie. But before Perry leaves he would like to give Madea fans a proper goodbye with a stage play called the Madea's Farewell Play Tour.

Tickets go on sale Friday (Nov. 16), with the west coast leg of the tour kicking off in Oakland, Calif. on Jan. 18 and end in Las Vegas on Jan. 27. For now, the tour only takes place in California, Nevada, and Arizona but more dates are soon to come. The tour will reportedly run for three additional months.

Marking the 49-year-olds 21st stage play as the Atlanta Grandma, the show will star the original cast made up of Tamela Mann, David Mann, and Cassi Davis. Shortly before the tour wraps, the writer and producer will be leaving the legendary character behind him with his final Madea project, Madea’s Family Funeral set to hit theaters March 1.

Though the film series may be gone, its impact is likely to never be forgotten.

Kylie Jenner Doubles Down On Being Crowned A "Self Made" Billionaire

The premise of "self-made" and its interpretation when it comes to privileged celebrities has been a huge debate. When Kylie Jenner was named Forbes' youngest self-made billionaire, debates were raised due to her timeline in the limelight and her wealthy family. The 21-year-old defended her title, explaining how she doesn't fall into any ofter category.

"There’s really no other word to use other than self-made because that is the truth," she said in Q&A with Interview Magazine's German edition. "That is the category that I fall under," she started.

She acknowledged how her fan base equated to her success but refuted claims that she used her family's money to jump-start her wildly successful Kylie Cosmetics line.

"Although, I am a special case because before I started Kylie Cosmetics, I had a huge platform and lots of fans. I did not get money from my parents past the age of 15. I used 100 percent of my own money to start the company, not a dime in my bank account is inherited… and I am very proud of that."

Earlier this month (March 5) the mother-of-one officially surpassed Mark Zuckerberg as the youngest person to reach billionaire status, when Kylie Cosmetics hit a billion dollars in revenue.
