Product Description

When Madea (Tyler Perry) gets sick, her family comes to her aid. What they don't realize is that they're the ones who need her help. As always, Madea's cockeyed outlook on life saves the day and guarantees side-splitting laughs along the way.

Amazon.com

The moment the six-foot-tall, chain-smoking, gun-toting grandmother Madea walks on stage, it's clear that her creator, Tyler Perry, is a man who knows and appreciates his audience. Perry is the writer/director/star of the surprise hit Diary of a Mad Black Woman; like that movie, the stage play I Can Do Bad All By Myself mixes melodrama, gospel music, and freewheeling improvisational comedy--all the more loose and rambunctious because it was recorded live. In I Can Do Bad All By Myself, Madea's two granddaughters grapple with man trouble: One sister is now engaged to the other's husband, while the other resists the attentions of an ex-con with good intentions. While this angst unfolds, the heavy emotions are punctuated by rousing gospel singing and Madea's barbed, heretical wit. There's nothing sophisticated or subtle here; Perry wants to give his audience a good laugh, wring a tear from their eyes, and send them home with renewed faith in the Lord. Diary of a Mad Black Woman may have made Perry a nationally-recognized name, but watching him live on stage makes it clear he was a star long before the movie came out--the rapport he has with the crowd is palpable. --Bret Fetzer

This is really an excellent play. Madea's granddaughter is living with her following her divorce. She is shocked when she learns her sister Maylee is engaged to her recent ex-husband Anthony. Maylee is a hootchie more interested in men that her own 14 year old daughter who is living with Madea. This is such a hilarious--yet serious play. I don't want to be a spoiler but the twists and turns of the storyline will keep you on your feet. The neighbor Mr. Brown provides comic relief. It's a great play and it although it's a comedy it addresses serious issues. YOu must check out the extras. The play includes a wonderful featurette with Tyler Perry providing some behind the scene details of this particular play. It seems the theater flooded prior to the performance and a Friday show had to be canceled. Tyler went out to speak to the crowd and signed autographs. He really felt bad about canceling the show due to the power being out because most of the fans didn't want a refund they wanted to see the show. "I Can Do Bad By Myself," also addresses some of the themes featured in the film "Diary of a Mad Black Woman," most noticibly a woman who has escaped a verbally abusive man who is hesitant to embrace real love. Another thing I enjoyed about this play is that the women look like real black women you might see anywhere and not just supermodels. They have average wigs and weave and are regular clothes. Great play and of course Madea is hilarious.

I really enjoy this movie. When it arrive I watch 3 day straight. The stars Tyler Perry as Madea a grandma who is the glue to the family. The two sisters Vianne and Mayline aren't getting along because Mayline is marrying Vianne's ex-husand Anthony. Vianne is stil hurt about the divorce and feelslike she will spend the rest of her life alone. Vianne realizes that God is in control. God will give her direction. Mayline realize that marrying her sister is wrong and doesn't go thtough with it. This play reminds of my great gramda who past away 9 years ago . She was the glue to maternal side of the family everytime I play it makes me think of her.

Hilarity ensues. Great lines, AWESOME SINGERS and always wrapped in an uplifting message. Tyler Perry productions may not be everyones cup of tea, but whenever I am feeling low and need a pick me up, I pop in one of his plays, and it never fails to lift my spirit, and remind me that GOD is still great and on the throne.

U just can't go wrong with this man's acting and writing ability. He is so damn funny I watch Madea every time I need a mom she does the trick for me. Uncle Joe is also one of my favorites ... the Browns too. finding out that the dark funny man is in real life married to Madea's daughter in all of Madea's movies is in real life a Christian couple plus they have about 5 kids all dark like him but her features she has such a beautiful face.. boy if she ever lost weight she would be a model. what a wonderful program and I love the plays I have everything Tyler has done and he is a genius. Gosh if I were 30 years younger lookout Madea !

I just LOVE all of Tyler Perrys work. I have seen this several times and loved it each time I watched it.
He is so talented - and so funny, but as with all his work - whether it be a stage play or a movie there is always
a lesson - and well done. You have to see this one.

NICE SMOOTH TEXTURE LOOKS GREAT AND IT DOES THE JOB WELL. I JUST WISH SOMEBODY WOULD DESIGN AN ADAPTER YOU CAN CREW BACK OF YOUR FURNITURE SO AS YOU MOVE THE HEAD PART WONT COME DOWN.BUT THATS NOT THIS PRODUCTS FAULT.
I WOULD GIVE IT 6 STARS IF I COULD AND FOR THIS PRICE ARE YOU KIDDING ME.
ITS A GOOD BUY
