SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) - America’s favorite tough-talking, gun-toting grandmother is coming to Shreveport.

Tyler Perry, the actor and playwright who created the Madea franchise, announced Monday that “Madea’s Farewll Play Tour” will perform at the Municipal Auditorium on Thursday, March 14, 2019. The production is Perry’s 21st stage play.

In addition to Perry, the play will star Tamela Mann, David Mann, and Cassi Davis Patton.

Perry made headlines last month when he announced that he is retiring the character. In addition to the final play, a movie titled Madea’s Family Funeral will be released in March.

The nationwide tour will kick off in Oakland, CA on January 18. Tickets for the Shreveport show will go on sale Friday, December 7 at 10:00 a.m.
