About Tyler Perrys Madeas One Big Happy Family
Tyler Perry's Madea in One Big Happy Family -Show History
Madea's Big Happy Family is a 2010 American musical play created, written, produced, and directed by Tyler Perry. Perry, who was ranked by Forbes magazine as the sixth highest-paid man in Hollywood with films grossing over $500 million worldwide as of June 2011, began writing the play after the death of his mother in December 2009. His mother, Willie Maxine Perry, was only 64 at the time of her death. Like most of Perry's work, the musical features a predominantly African-American cast and stars himself as Mabel Madea Simmons, who recurs constantly in all of his work. The character Madea, who first appeared in Perry's 1999 play, I Can Do Bad All By Myself is always portrayed by a cross-dressing Tyler Perry who says he based the character on his own aunt who lives in Georgia, as well as parts of his mother. Perry got the nickname Madea from a Southern African-American contraction of the words mother dear which is also used as a reference to a great-grandmother. Madea's trademark no-nonsense manner, coupled with physical comedy has always been a hit with all types of audiences.
