Tyler Perry Presents..
February 17th, 2014
February 14-15 Tyler Perry brought the Towship Auditorium another great play titled Hell Hath No Fury Like A Woman Scorned. In typical Tyler Perry fashion, this play had the audience feeling a roller coaster of emotions. This play gave us a little comedy and drama…which we are going to say it was a “dramedy.” This was an amazing play and look forward to the next.
