Bravo’s “Real Housewives Of Atlanta” Star Kandi Burruss is currently making a new huge business move and we’re here for it!!
Kandi and her husband, Todd Tucker, have joined the Broadway revival of “The Wiz” as producers.
The two shared:
“We are thrilled to be part of The Wiz. The songs, choreography, costumes, everything about The Wiz is epic.
We have always said we want to help open the doors of theatre to all people. Theatre has the power to influence and inspire people to create change through art, and that is what we all need now. Art can heal and art can change you. It has changed us. So, come on and ease on down the road with us.”
Huge congratulations to the two!
The production team consists of a book by William F. Brown and a Tony Award-winning score by Charlie Smalls (and others), director Schele Williams (The Notebook, revival of Disney’s Aida), award-winning choreographer JaQuel Knight (Beyonce’s “Single Ladies,” Black is King), Emmy-nominated writer and TV host Amber Ruffin (“The Amber Ruffin Show,” “Late Night With Seth Meyers”), Joseph Joubert (music supervision, orchestrations, & music arrangements), and Allen René Louis (vocal arrangements, music arrangements).
The Wiz design team will include a scenic set by Academy Award-winner Hannah Beachler (Black Panther, Beyonce’s Black is King and Lemonade), costume design by Emmy Award-winner and two-time Academy Award-nominated Sharen Davis (Ray, Dreamgirls), lighting design by Barrymore Award-winner Ryan J.
