NeNe Leakes on Broadway

NeNe Leakes made her debut in Chicago on Broadway this week. The former Real Housewives of Atlanta star took on the role of Matron “Mama” Morton.

The night before her return to the big stage, NeNe shared on Instagram, “The spotlight will be on me TOMORROW nite as I take this stage! You know life has a way of knocking you down but God believed in me when so many didn’t! No matter what you have been thru your dreams can come true! This is my second time on BROADWAY! #gettingbacktome #chicago #neneismamamorton”

NeNe will play Mama in Chicago through December 20, 2015. She previously said her services were requested through January, but she said no, “I couldn’t do it. When you do Broadway, you really cannot do anything else. You have to clean your schedule, and the moment that you clean your schedule, that is when everybody calls.” Check out pics of NeNe‘s first night in Chicago below.
