THEATER | "Madea on the Run" 

Tyler Perry creates a whacky new set of adventures for his beloved character Mabel Simmons — known best as Madea — in "Madea on the Run," which plays Rochester on February 20. This time around, Madea (played by Tyler Perry) is in hot water with local law enforcement. To fly under the radar, she conveniently becomes caretaker to her friend Bam (played by Cassi Davis), who's recently had hip replacement surgery. The only problem? Bam doesn't know Madea is running from the authorities. As tends to happen, Madea brings a little chaos and a lot of fun to her recovering friend's home. Perry has even written new music for this nationally touring show.

"Madea on the Run" plays at 4 p.m. and 8 p.m. on Saturday, February 20, at the Auditorium Theatre, 885 East Main Street. $48-$68.
