Tyler Perry's Comedy, 'The Haves and The Have Nots' (The Play), Out On DVD Today

 Tyler Perry’s The Haves and The Have Nots (The Play) arrives on DVD (plus Digital UltraViolet), Digital Download and Video on Demand July 9 from Lionsgate Home Entertainment.  Fresh from a wildly successful 46-city tour, writer-producer-director Tyler Perry delivers a positive message about life, faith and family with an amazing cast of veteran stage performers including Patrice Lovely (OWN’s “Love Thy Neighbor,” A Madea Christmas [The Play]) Palmer Williams, Jr. (Madea’s Big Happy Family [The Play]), Kislyck Halsey (Madea’s Big Happy Family), Maurice Lauchner (A Madea Christmas [The Play]) and Alexis Jones (A Madea Christmas [The Play]).

Led by the hilarious Patrice Lovely reprising her role as the crowd-favorite “Grandma Hattie,” the play is a multi-generation ensemble with deep audience appeal.  Full of laughs and original soul stirring music, the heartwarming play serves up valuable life lessons. Grandma Hattie Mae’s family is poor and struggling to save her home. The Willis family is filthy rich. When Hattie’s daughter, Rose and son-in-law, Frank, go to work at the Willis estate, it appears as if their financial worries are over. But when Mrs. Willis tries to buy Frank’s affections, both families learn that choices often come with a price.

The inspiration behind the new television series from Tyler Perry on the Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN), Tyler Perry’s The Haves and the Have Nots (The Play) will be a welcome addition to the collection of plays that have made Perry a household name.  The DVD includes behind-the-scenes moments and cast interviews that illuminate the joy and passion the actors had towards touring this production.  Tyler Perry’s The Haves and The Have Nots (The Play) will be available on DVD (plus Digital UltraViolet) for the suggested retail price of $19.98.  The release is available on the same date as the home entertainment release of Tyler Perry’s Temptation: Confessions of a Marriage Counselor.
