Tyler Perry has announced that he will hit the road for Madea's Farewell tour, which will also coincide with the character's final movie appearance. The final movie will hit in 2019 and Perry will hit the road for Tyler Perry's Madea's Farewell Play Tour as well.
This will be the 21st stage play of Tyler Perry's career. In a humorous statement in the press release, Perry said that he doesn't want to be playing Madea when he reaches her age. The first dates of the stage play will kick off in Oakland in January and will run for four months.
Madea got her start in the 1999 stage play I Can Do Mad All By Myself and has since appeared in 10 stage plays. She also appeared in 10 movies, starting with Diary of a Mad Black Woman in 2005. The final movie in the Madea series will be titled A Madea Family Funeral.
