Kandi Burruss Making Broadway Debut as Xscape Drops New Music

Kandi Burruss revealed on Watch What Happens Live that she wouldn’t be recording new music with recently reunited R&B group Xscape because she wanted to pursue a career in theater instead.

“I’m going to be doing Broadway and some other things, and they’re going to be doing new music,” she told Andy Cohen.

The Grammy-winning songwriter is now set to star as Matron “Mama” Morton in Chicago, one of the longest-running Broadway musicals of all time, from Jan. 15 through March 11 at the Ambassador Theatre in New York City.

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.

Meanwhile, the ladies of Xscape are keeping it pushing as well, hiring Tamar Braxton’s estranged hubby Vince Herbert as their manager and dropping two new tracks sans Burruss.
