*** This review may contain spoilers ***

This is a good production. Marva King is great in her role as Helen and Tyler Perry does it again as Madea and his new role, Daddy Charles. I like Tamela Mann, she is a inspirational woman who has no negative things in her roles. Warning to readers, this may be a spoiler. In one part of the play, Charles and Helen are in the bedroom arguing about having sex. Helen says at the end, it wouldn't have lasted 5 minutes, and Charles (Daddy Charles' son) says it would have lasted 5 minutes with you. Next Helen gets mad at her mom (Tamela Mann), and Helen complains stating that Mom wanted her to stay with Charles (she suspects Charles is cheating on her)and if it wasn't for him she couldn't buy her expensive gifts and pay her bills. Mom preaches to Helen and throw what appears to be a few dollars back in her face and tells her she doesn't need her money. Helen runs after her mom and tries to apologize to her and Mom tells her if she going to get mad at someone it should be the Devil. Great play! Keep up the good work, Tyler!
