Tyler Perry Takes a Break From Touring For Other Projects

If you had your heart set on plans to see Madea’s Family Fish Fry on a stage near you, I’m afraid that it’s going to take much longer than you anticipated. Tyler Perry took to his Web site to declare that he’s going to be taken a break from touring in order to work on other projects.

Translation: He appreciates you Madea lovers, but he’s trying to be a legit movie star.

Or in his words:

I don’t know if you remember this or not, but around 2005 I took off from touring my Madea plays for about 5 years. During that time, I was working mostly on movies and TV shows. Well, as much as I love to be out on stage and doing a live Madea show, the time has come again for me to take a long break from the stage. I have some major projects that I’m working on that will require a lot of my time and effort. Just know that I did not want to stop this tour until I had hit as many cities as possible. So I’m going to finish out this Fall leg of the tour and then take a long break.
