Last month it was reported the ladies of R&B group Xscape would be putting out new music, sans Kandi Burruss. Kandi later revealed the reason why she would not be working with the other members was because she had plans on Broadway among a few other things.
We now learn that Kandi has just landed a role in the hit musical “Chicago.” The Broadway musical will begin running this January for eight weeks. The current cast of Chicago includes Charlotte d’Amboise as Roxie Hart, Leigh Zimmerman as Velma Kelly, Toderick Hall as Billy Flynn, Raymond Bokhour as Amos Hart and R. Lowe as Mary Sunshine.
Chicago is the longest running American musical and running revival on Broadway. Featuring a book by Fred Ebb and Bob Fosse, music by Kander and lyrics by Ebb.
