"This is a major breakthrough for me as a solo actress to receive the opportunity to piggyback with a Tyler Perry production. I am thrilled that theatregoers who attend my show will receive a gift bag from LionsGate throughout my 3 month run," said Juliette Fairley, creator, producer and performer of THE MAKING OF A MULATTO, while taking a break from final rehearsals this week.
Based on Perry's successful stage play, TYLER PERRY'S MADEA GOES TO JAIL is written and directed by Tyler Perry. The film is produced Reuben Cannon. The joint marketing venture was initiated by Terry Hines & Associates in Burbank, California.
The Making of a Mulatto is about an Afro-American G.I. who marries a white French woman during the height of the Civil Rights movement and the back end of the Nazi invasion of France. In the show, which features her parent's love story, Miss Fairley juxtaposes fascism with the Jim Crow laws of the South.
