Kandi Burruss is really headed to Broadway folks!

The singer and Real Housewives of Atlanta star announced to fans that she will play  Matron “Mama” Morton in a revival of Chicago.

“I can officially announce that I will be performing as Mama Morton in Chicago on Broadway January 15th- March 11th!” she posted on Instagram. “I’m so excited! Get your tickets now & check out the announcement on People.com #Thankful#Blessed #LivingMyBestLife#DreamsDoComeTrue”

Burruss made the initial announcement that she would be doing Broadway on Watch What Happens Live in November after host Andy Cohen asked if Xscape would be putting out new music.

“They are doing new music,” she said pointing to members LaTocha Scott, Tamika Scott and Tameka Tiny Harris.  “I’m going to be doing Broadway and some other things, and they’re going to be doing new music.”

Since, Xscape has not only recorded new music, but dropped two singles. HipHollywood reported the news first that the group also hired Vincent Herbert as their manager.

Meanwhile Burruss will entertain audiences for eight weeks at the Ambassador Theatre in NYC.

According to Playbill, the production stars Tony Award nominee Charlotte d’Amboise as Roxie Hart, original cast member Leigh Zimmerman as Velma Kelly, YouTube sensation and Broadway star Todrick Hall (through Jan. 14 only) as Billy Flynn, Raymond Bokhour as Amos Hart, LaVon Fisher-Wilson as Matron “Mama” Morton and R. Lowe as Mary Sunshine.

Is Trey Songz Completely Out Of Control?!

Published

on

Trey Songz used to be a singer known for sexually suggestive lyrics and his panache for saying “yuuuup.” Now, he may be known more as an R&B singer with a possible rage problem…

Trigga Trey has been accused of smacking a girl in the face with her own phone and now that accuser is suing for $50,000. The unidentified woman says that while at Philadelphia’s Vanity Grand Cabaret strip club she sought to get a snapshot with the singer, but he didn’t oblige. Instead, according to the woman, he pushed her phone back into her face and caused her glasses to break.

If true, this isn’t Trey’s first time getting way too aggressive for no d@mn reason. Just last year he became so upset over authorities ending his show in Detroit that he threw microphones and speakers from the stage. Unfortunately, he also injured a police officer in the process. In August, he reached a plea deal in that case and got his felony assault charge reduced to just two counts of disturbing the peace.

So, back to the fan who just wanted a photo. It looks like she’s only seeking coin and not criminal charges. And in Songz’s defense he does take pictures with some fans (see below), so maybe it was just the way she asked.
