Greg Crawford Detroit Free Press Published 9:00 AM EDT Apr 17, 2019 Tyler Perry is casting aside his silver wig and frumpy housedresses and bidding adieu to Madea, the comic character who has brought him fame and riches via a series of plays and movies that date to the late 1990s. But his mouthy, pot-smoking, gun-toting Madea isn’t about to go gentle into that good night. Instead, she’s taking a victory lap around the U.S. on MADEA’S FAREWELL PLAY TOUR, which lands at the Fox this weekend. Perry and a cast of veterans from his Madea projects (Cassie Davis, Tamela Mann, David Mann) will take the stage to act out a laugh-fest that’s reminiscent of Perry’s old TBS sitcom “Meet the Browns.” Set at a young man’s graduation party, it includes rapid-fire comic putdowns, family bickering and, of course, a shocking revelation. (And yes, Madea ultimately finds it necessary to pull out her gun to maintain order.) Mixed in with the humor is … [Read more...] about The weekend: Madea’s farewell tour, ‘Star Wars’ strippers, Bunnyville

"Oh, you hate your job? Why didn't you say so? There's a support group for that. It's called EVERYBODY, and they meet at the bar." -Drew Carey When you think of a galaxy, you probably think of a bright, dense core with huge, swirling outstretched spiral arms. Something, perhaps, like the Silverado Galaxy, below. And while there are many galaxies like this, it isn't most of them! Oh, sure, most galaxies do have spiral arms, but they have something else, too. The Southern Pinwheel galaxy's got it, the gorgeous NGC 1672's got it, as does NGC 1300, which is directly face-on to us, and some galaxies, like the Sculptor Galaxy, barely show it to us at all, but still have it. And you can see it, even though it's nearly edge-on, if you look in the right light. I'm talking, of course, about a bar! It turns out, of all the spiral galaxies we've ever discovered in the Universe, two out of three have bars! Including ours! (That's not us; that's the Great Barred Spiral Galaxy, which is about twice … [Read more...] about Meet me at the bar!

So, it’s time to get busy and make plans for the last night of 2018. One of our favorite ways to ring in the new year is by taking in a concert or other show. And this being the Bay Area, there are plenty of great options – ranging from big-name headliners to talented local artists. Here are our best bets for New Year’s Eve: Lauryn Hill “The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill” is one of the best albums of all time. That’s our opinion – and it’s clearly one shared by many others. In a recent NPR reader poll, “Miseducation” was voted one of the greatest albums ever made by a female artist; only Joni Mitchell’s “Blue” and Carole King’s “Tapestry” – both released in 1971 – ranked higher. … [Read more...] about New Year’s Eve Bay Area style: Our guide to the top Dec. 31 events
