Wendy Williams on Broadway?! Yep, we never thought we’d utter those words either, but the talk show diva will make her big debut in Chicago this summer.
Williams will tackle the role of Matron “Mama” Morton starting June 25 and continuing throughAugust 11th.
As you may remember, Queen Latifah received an Academy Award nomination when she played Mama in the film adaptation of the Tony-winning play, but, if we’re honest, we have a hard time seeing Williams filling her shoes. Can Wendy even sing?
You can catch the self-proclaimed “queen of all media” in her seven-week stint as Mama at the Ambassador Theater.
