While ¾ of Xscape are busy prepping their comeback EP, Kandi Burruss is busy on Broadway, making her big stage debut as Big Mama Morton in Chicago this week.
The Grammy-winner’s run is scheduled to continue through March 11 at the Ambassador Theater in New York City. Husband Todd Tucker and friends Yandy Smith, Mona Scott-Young and Sheree Whitfield were all in attendance to support the Real Housewives of Atlanta star.

It’s always great to have support on your first night on stage. @monascottyoung we’ve been rolling for the last couple of months on tour & im so happy that you made time to be here for my opening night! @yandysmith thanks sis for being here. For the next 2 months I’m in your city so I’ll be knocking on your door to brainstorm on some new money moves & play dates for the kids! Ace gets here Friday! @shereewhitfield I was mad at you after Sunday’s episode but when you surprised me at my show I didn’t even care anymore about the drama because I was just happy to see you were there for me on my first night! I appreciate y’all! #MamaMorton #ChicagoTheMusical
