By popular demand, a sixth performance has been added to Tyler Perry's Madea's Big Happy Family engagement at the Fox Theatre on Thursday, May 6 at 8:00 p.m.

Tyler Perry has created another (#12) blockbuster mega hit that is actually a cultural experience. It has been a smashing hit on the west coast! The live stage production is a reality show because it depicts real life situations in our own families. Leave it to Tyler Perry to bring it home! It delivers a message of love, hope and inspiration yet this big happy family offers plenty of dramatic events that are just hilarious. It is packed with GREAT SINGING...great acting and of course Madea's in rare form. It takes us back to where it all began with the one and only Madea. The production consists of state of the art lighting and staging; video screens and a 9-piece orchestra band to compliment the show.

Tyler Perry starring as Madea, has a cast of familiar and new characters. Cassi Davis (Ella from House of Payne); Cheryl "Pepsii" Riley (Joyce) and Chandra Currelley (Shirley), both stellar R&B artists who have been in several of Mr. Perry's productions - plays and movies; Palmer Williams, Jr. (Uncle Monroe) from House of Payne and other Perry productions; Tamar Davis (Kimberly) and Crissy Collins (Tammy) both from previous productions.
