...Like Madea Scorned
Tyler Perry is a machine. The writer, actor, songwriter, director, and mass producer of African-American dramas, comedies, dramadies, and romcoms produces so much work it wouldn’t be surprising if he has a secret room full of Cambodians piecing together story lines with dice labeled with various plot ideas. The most prominent one being “cross-dress like an old black woman.” Somehow it all works, and Perry has amazingly maintained his dominance nearly ten years since the release of his first film, Diary of a Mad Black Woman.
Perry’s genius now comes to Miami this Wednesday and the following Thursday in the form of a play called Hell Hath No Fury. The enigmatic description of its plot makes us think it’s a dramatic black romance. Or is it about bondage? Or maybe about sibling rivalry and a “player”? We can’t really tell, but what we do know is there will be a whole bunch of yelling and singing. Really, what more could any fan of theater ask for? Showtime is 7:30 p.m. at the James L. Knight Center (400 SE Second Ave., Miami). Tickets cost $49 for Wednesday and $53 for Thursday. Visit jlkc.com or call 305-416-5978.
Wed., April 30, 7:30 p.m., 2014
