All in the ‘Family’

'Madea' makes debut at ArcLight

WHAT: Lions Gate’s Tuesday night preem of “Madea’s Family Reunion”

WHO: Multihyphenate Tyler Perry; producer Reuben Cannon and executive producer Michael Paseornek; plus members of pic’s ensemble cast

WHERE: ArcLight, followed by a soiree at the Cabana Club

PHENOMENAL WOMEN: Perry said his most profound experience during production came while shooting on a former plantation occupied by 150 slaves. He sat with pic’s Maya Angelou and Cicely Tyson as they discussed Billie Holiday and Miles Davis. The women star in a particularly poignant scene that, Paseornek said, “gives me goose bumps every time. I feel like I’m watching history.”
