Tyler Perry's Interview With Mo'Nique on The Mo'Nique Show...Tour of Tyler Perry Studios
Tyler Perry Studios is home to the infamous and comedic “MA-to-the-D-E-A” (Madea)! Madea has been instrumental in the lucrative success of Tyler Perry and his studios. She is known for her satirical sayings such as, “Hello-err” (hello), “Hallelu-yerr” (hallelujah), and “Sat Down” (sit down), just to name a few. Additionally, Tyler Perry Studios is home to famous stage plays such as The Marriage Counselor, I Know I’ve Been Changed, and Why Did I Get Married, movies such as For Colored Girls (2011 NAACP Award Winner), A Family That Preys, and Madea’s Big Happy Family,
and television shows such as House of Payne and Meet the Browns, just to name a few. According to Tyler Perry’s website, he has each genre broken down into titles: Stageplays and Book, TPS Movies, and T. P. TV respectively. One common denominator of all three is Madea. She travels from stage plays to films and from films to television disciplining children, breaking and running from the law, and amusing her audience wherever she settles.
I have had the privilege of being in the company of a couple of Tyler Perry Studios’ staff and cast members. Ms. Maria Harper of Maria Harper Designs (ATL) is the former fashion designer for Tyler Perry’s plays while on tour and is also my aunt. Also, Demetria McKinney who plays Janine Payne on Tyler Perry’s House of Payne is the goddaughter of Ms. Maria Harper. They both have worked for Tyler Perry Studios for many years and speak highly of how much fun and family oriented the staff and cast members are on site. This has truly been inspirational for me and I hope to follow that inspiration one day and too work for Tyler Perry Studios.
