During the past decade Tyler Perry undoubtedly has established himself as an entertainment mogul, unleashing numerous pieces of creative output in the form of acting, writing, directing and producing for stage, film and television. While some have criticized Perry's primarily African-American-based storytelling as racially offensive or caricatures, a devotional niche audience has connected with his familial melodrama, humor and religiously inspired life lessons. After five years at the helm of box-office hits such as “Diary of a Mad Black Woman” and “I Can Do Bad All by Myself,” Perry has hit the road to return to theatrical roots with his latest production, “Madea's Big Happy Family.” Featuring his signature cross-dressed matriarch, Perry is set to perform two shows at the Richmond Coliseum on Sunday, Feb. 21, at 3 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. $51-$61. 800-745-3000.
