Media mogul Tyler Perry  announced on his website yesterday that he’s taken an indefinite break from his popular “Madea” stage shows to focus on his film and TV projects.

This is what he wrote on his website:

I don’t know if you remember this or not, but around 2005 I took off from touring my Madea plays for about 5 years. During that time, I was working mostly on movies and TV shows. Well, as much as I love to be out on stage and doing a live Madea show, the time has come again for me to take a long break from the stage. I have some major projects that I’m working on that will require a lot of my time and effort. Just know that I did not want to stop this tour until I had hit as many cities as possible. So I’m going to finish out this Fall leg of the tour and then take a long break.”

This is the not the first time Perry has taken an extended hiatus from live theater. He took a similar breather back in 2005.
