Tyler Perry is working with BET+ to retire Mabel “Madea” Earlene Simmons in style.
For over 20 years, the gun-wielding, Bible-quoting grandmother has imparted wisdom and laughs to Black families. Now Perry and fans are extending a virtual farewell with curated exhibitions celebrating the legacy and history.
The museum comes as Madea’s final act, Tyler Perry’s Madea’s Farewell Play, heads to BET+, premiering August 27.
It will feature unique exhibitions, including The Legacy Portrait Shop, which will offer a visual timeline of the character that follows her from her first appearance in the play I Can Do Bad All by Myself to Tyler Perry’s Madea’s Farewell.
The Hall of Song is an interactive showcase allowing guests to relive the top musical moments from the Madea franchise and even create a song of their own.
The Muumuus and Pearls Costume Exhibit will feature the style of Madea, her family and friends.
