Kandi Burruss Stars in Off-Broadway’s NEWSical The Musical [Video]


As if Kandi Burruss wasn’t busy enough, the popular reality star and Grammy Award winning singer/songwriter added Broadway sensation to her repertoire, as she began her two-week run as a guest star in New York City comical, NEWSical The Musical.

Known for celebrity cameos like Latoya Jackson and Perez Hilton, the off-Broadway musical is a hilarious compilation of skits dealing with pop culture and current events. The shows’ directors and cast refer to Kandi as “anything but a reality star.”

During the opening night performance (January 13), Kandi, who has years of experience on stage with her former girl group Xscape, took the spotlight without breaking a sweat. The crowd was impressed with how well she blended in with the cast of musical theater veterans, and even more impressed to find out that she learned all of her parts in a mere five days. Her down to earth, country girl demeanor won over the audience, as she excitedly bowed to the standing ovation she received on opening night.

Vixen was on the scene to get the latest from Kandi on the never ending drama right before she stepped on stage. Press play for the low down and head to New York to watch Kandi in action until January 26. — Gia Peppers
