Gina Wilhelm Actress – Madea s Big Happy Family
Tyler Perry’s “Madea’s Big Happy Family” is touring throughout the US with Perry in the title role.
Perry was compelled to write the show after his mother died in December. The show centers around Shirley, a mother who discovers her cancer has recurred and she only has a few months left to live.
Her family doesn’t notice until they are set straight by Madea, who gives them a reality check. Perry returns to this role on stage for the first time in five years.
The show then turns into a variety show, with the characters singing favorite “old school” songs.
Among the show’s highlights are Chandra Currelly-Young as Shirley and Cassi Davis as Aunt Bam.
