Product Description

Get ready to laugh and sing out loud. WHAT'S DONE IN THE DARK, set in a hospital emergency room, follows several nurses, their doctors, and some very interesting patients (hello, Mr. Brown!). What seems routine rarely is. Some folks would do well to remember: what's done in the dark always come to light.

Amazon.com

Tyler Perry mixes melodrama, social commentary, slapstick comedy, gospel music, and public health announcements in What's Done in the Dark... The lives of nurses, doctors, and patients of a city hospital get turned upside-down: A nurse discovers the doctor she's fooling around with is married; a faithful husband is diagnosed with a sexually transmitted disease; the son of a nurse abandoned by her husband seeks desperate means to make money; and audience favorite Mr. Brown (David Mann), who's appeared in other Perry plays, comes to the hospital convinced that he's dying, dragging his long-suffering daughter Cora (Tamela Mann) along with him. What's Done in the Dark... is a production of a play, filmed before a live audience, so it doesn't have the visual dynamics of a movie, but the full-tilt, show-stopping gospel songs wouldn't have the same unbridled exuberance anywhere but on the stage. Perry's writing is rarely subtle, but What's Done in the Dark... is broader than usual--even longtime fans may find the cartoonish Nurse Trudy (D'Atra Hicks) a bit hard to take. Nonetheless, the play continues Perry's devotion to themes of love, respect, and the grace of God, as well as providing health information for the African-American community. And Mr. Brown, in his jarringly colorful clothes and silly malaprops, is a topnotch buffoon. His over-the-top theatrics are not for everyone, but fans won't be able to get enough of him. --Bret Fetzer

My husband and I treated my parents and younger cousin to this play when they came to Huntsville, AL. We laughed so hard at times and cried at others. Brown and Cora....oh my goodness. My mom and I hi-fived at another part....ladies you'll why. Typical for Tyler Perry's plays, it had wonderful messages and we all had a lot to talk about for the week. No, Madea is not in it, but I think it's worth buying.

The only things that saved this play were Ryan Gentiles taking his shirt off again (lord have mercy there oughta be a law) and of course, the stellar performance from Tamala Mann. She always brings the house down and her singing just lifts your spirit every time. David Mann is usually a riot but he, as well as the other Tyler Perry veterans we've all grown to love, had a challenge - the newer actors were very much lacking in skills...in fact they were terrible. One just kept screaming and overacting...I kept forwarding whenever she came back on the set because she wasn't funny and the screaming was nerve wracking. I think that Tyler may be trying to do too many things at once or perhaps he is being too nice trying to give breaks to 'c' or 'd' actors. He is a big hit, we love him. He needs to ensure that he continues to produce quality film, theatre and tv shows. I saw the movie "Why Did I Get Married", then brought the cd and my family and I have watched it about two or three times because it was so good. I am looking forward to the movie "Meet the Browns". But I am very disappointed in "What's Done in the Dark." Very.

It has been a LONG time since I've laughed this hard. Mr. Brown was at his BEST I laughed until I had a headache, literally. TP takes a comical approach to addressing some serious health concerns within the high blood pressure, diabetes, VD, the need for black MEN to get check-up regularly. All though it's comical you will get the message. I'm going to see the Marriage Counselor next month and I can't wait. I love TP's plays and movies. The DVD has a featurette called Mr Brown goes shopping and he interviews the cast. You have to wait it, he is just TOO much!!

What's Done in the Dark is very funny, I would say it is the best play Tyler Perry has ever wrote. I went to see it at the RBC Center in raleigh, north carolina it was very good. I recommend that you watch it you will definately not be disappointed.

I felt obligated to write a good review about this play since I am very much a Tyler Perry fan but I truly just did not like this play. If it was really about health disparities, I think he should have emphasized it more. I mean, he made me happy by putting Christian Keyes, Ryan Gentles and svelte Terrell Carter in the play but other than them and of course, David and Tamela Mann, everything else fell short. I think I mostly did not like D'Atra Hicks' performance because it was just too much. What man who got a medical degree from Yale would be interested in a woman so CRAZY! And she was so demure in Family Reunion that I was shocked this was the same woman. Her character was just tooo crazy. The plot seemed rushed and points were not focused upon long enough to make them stick.

Don't get me wrong, I absolutely LOVED "Why did I get Married," the movie. It is probably Tyler's best work but when he brings movies out too quickly after the other, he falters. For instance, compare Family Reunion and Daddy's Little Girls. Also, Why Did I Get Married and Meet the Browns (he really should not have cast Rick Fox in that movie at all--terrible move). I hope he realizes this; when his movies come out too quickly after another, one pales in comparison and quality suffers. I truly hope he realizes this and takes time to write and produce his plays and movies so that the Tyler Perry can remain above the standard.

We saw this play at Symphony Hall in Newark, NJ. I laughed hard throughout this play. I hope D'atra Hicks was at the recorded performance. She tore up her song at the end of the play..... This play was really funny especially Mr. Brown. Can't wait to see the dvd...

When it came to Memphis in 2006, my play sister and I went to see it. Because the people sitting right behind us (a couple of course) talked and argued just about the whole play, we couldn't hardly hear and had just lost interest in the play. I ordered the play last week and got it yesterday. I went home and watched it and laughed sooooooo hard and got the many messages Tyler Perry wants us to get from it. It's enlightening and funny. This won't be a waste of your money. I can't wait to share and watch it with my family this weekend.

Tyler Perry has done it again. I just love watching this over and over again without getting tired of watching it. This play hits home with some of the situations, and will keep you laughing all the way through.
