The Stage Play, Madea's Big Happy Family, was written, produced, directed by and stars Tyler Perry.

The story focuses on a middle-aged single mother named Miss Shirley (performed on stage by Chandra Currelley-Young), who has just received a diagnosis of terminal cancer. With the help of Madea, she assembles her grown children (and their significant others) for one final reunion, during which loyalties are tested and unpleasant truths are spilled.

Everything that happens as a result of Shirley's major announcement will either bring the family closer together or tear them apart forever.

    I and my wife attended this play in Savannah and it was absolutely fabulous! The song that Tamar sang toward the end in the bedroom still makes my wife cry whenever we watch the DVD. Is there anywhere to get that song (legally)? We would love to have the soundtrack all the songs.

    I LOVED the play. My favorite part is where Medea stops the play and talked to the audience. Since I saw the play, I have wanted to show it to my family, so they too can enjoy your speach. Now, all I can find is the movie. I like the interaction of the play. I was happy to find your web site so I can purchase the play and share with family and friends. I have most of the Medea movies, I love them. Keep up doing what you do so well. This play really hit home for me. God gave you a gift and you use it well!

    Hey Mr.Perry, I just saw this movie and I must say it is a very heartfelt movie. It has a lesson for everyone to learn and I'm learning more and more from you all the time. I get such a blessing from this movie and I love how you preach to everyone and tell everyone about God it's a blessing.

    I love this play!! Anything Tyler Perry does is great!!! I just want to know who wrote the song that Chandra (Shirley) Currelly sang when she passed. I love that song!!! I want that song!! Is there a soundtrack with that song on it? Thanks, Mr. Perry for the gift that you have and share with the world!! You are the only one who brings entertainment to us with lessons that tie in perfectly. There are good messages in all you do. Keep up the FANTASTIC work. As long as you are working, writing, performing, everything, you have a lifelong fan with me and my family!!! My two year old even loves your plays, he acts them out!!! Thank you!!!!

      T hank you for all your movies and plays. May God contiue to Bless you. I will MISS YOU on stage and I will be here when you get back. Now for the stage play, I brought 6 tickets for my family and forgot to buy me one. When I got to Cintas to see the play that when I discover the mistake. But they had some ticket on sale. The play came in time for my family. My Dad was pass away and it took a lot to get us from his hospital bedside. But we came and enjoy the play. My Dad pass away April 10, 2010. That why the play mean so much to us. It help us to know it ok to laugh in the mist of our pain.
