Madea is ready to make merry.
Tickets for “Tyler Perry’s A Madea Christmas,” coming to the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre on May 13 and 14, go on sale Friday. Tickets can be purchased at the box office, Ticketmaster.com, all Ticketmaster outlets or by calling 800-745-3000.
All seats are $25 plus fees. You can get in on the pre-sale and buy them today using the password “Gift.”
The production is billed as “an early Christmas gift.” Here’s the plot: “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.”
Perry’s latest Madea movie, “Madea’s Big Happy Family,” comes out April 22. It was adapted from the play he said he penned as he was grieving the loss of his mother.
His latest play marks a return of sorts to the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre. His film “For Colored Girls,” released last fall, shot a scene there. It was the scene in which Janet Jackson’s character attends the opera with her husband, played by Omari Hardwick.
