Kandi Burress is currently on tour with R&B group, Xscape, but has already made it crystal clear that following the tour’s end; they will be going her separate ways. A few weeks back, during an episode of Bravo‘s Watch What Happens Live, The Real Housewives of Atlanta star shut down the rumors that she would be releasing new music with the group, and instead, informed fans that she would be hitting Broadway.

In the play, Burress will play Matron “Mama” Morton. The role is to last for eight weeks through March 11th, 2018. Chicago will be showing at the Ambassador Theatre, New York.
