Now She's A Nurturing Mad Black Woman

She may be big and mad but she sure does want you to have a good time, ya’ll. So bring the whole family, because Tyler Perry is presenting his new play Madea Gets a Job at the Verizon Theatre. Packing a lotta spunk and spark in an old lady’s bod, Madea is back and full of surprises. If you saw her in other Perry classics including Diary of a Mad Black Woman, Madea’s Family Reunion and Madea Goes to Jail you might not think of our star as the care giving type. Let's just hope she can dig up a hidden nurturing ability for her new job working at an old folks home. Madea Gets a Job takes place May 10 at 6:30 p.m. at Verizon Theatre at Grand Prairie, 1001 Performance Place. Tickets are $29.75-$69.75. For more information call 972-854-5111, or visit
