Tyler Perry had this to say about this audition cruise:
“I’m sure you will have a lot of people that will be good and a lot of people that will be like ‘what the h**l,” and added “But I have a rule – you have to audition after you have a few drinks. That’s going to really tell the truth right there,’ he says. ‘If you don’t drink, that’s fine, I want you have about 10 cups of coffee and four Mountain Dews and come on up there and do your audition.”
