2 More Madea Movies On The Way; “A Madea Christmas” Will Probably Be Next
I was just reading THIS article announcing the next Tyler Perry stage play, titled, A Madea Christmas, which will begin running at the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre in Atlanta, GA, on May 13 and 14, with tickets going on sale tomorrow. I’m not sure if this show will travel like like last year’s cross-country tour of Madea’s Big Happy Family.
I bring this up because, as we’ve witnessed, after last year’s theater tour of Madea’s Big Happy Family (or it may have been sometime during its run), we learned a film adaptation of that play was coming; and of course, we already know that it’s been produced, seen the creative posters, the trailer, and know that it’ll be released in theaters in a week.
So, Obvious Guy says, well, does this mean that the next Tyler Perry Madea movie will be A Madea Christmas?
We already announced Lionsgate’s new agreement with TP, extending their relationship even further, with promises of at least 2 more Madea-centered movies. So, maybe we should just consider this stage run of A Madea Christmas to be a kind of audience test for what may be the next Madea movie.
I found the full list of Tyler Perry’s plays, and of the 13 titles he’s performed, 7 have been made into films, meaning, there are 6 potential Madea movies left: I Know I’ve Been Changed (1993), Madea’s Class Reunion (2003), What’s Done in the Dark (2006–2007), The Marriage Counselor (2008–2009), Laugh to Keep from Crying (2009) and the aforementioned A Madea Christmas (2011).
So, what’s A Madea Christmas about? The AJC gives the synopsis as: “a wealthy family meets for Christmas at their posh Cape Cod estate; family arguments and secrets cause quite a stir. It takes Mr. Brown, Cora and the almighty Madea to save this Christmas and make it into a foot-stomping good time.”
To our ATL readers, if you’re interested in checking out the play, visit Ticketmaster. Tickets are $25.
