NeNe Leakes brought all that Atlanta jazz to the stage on Monday night, when she made her debut in Broadway's Chicago as Mama Morton. She hit the stage for her first performance with her hair pinned up in that truly '20s flapper-girl style and a black suit, perfectly embodying the legendary character.
And in case you're wondering, she did not disappoint. Fans — including Perez Hilton — applauded the Real Housewives of Atlanta alum for her performance.
While she's hardly a rookie when it comes to gracing a Broadway stage (having appeared in Cinderella), if NeNe did have any pre-show jitters they were likely squashed thanks to the support received from RHOA ladies Cynthia Bailey and Sheree Whitfield, and hubby Gregg Leakes, before she even hit the stage.
And, their support was not lost on the RHOA alum. "Thank you to everyone that is sending well wishes, flowers & cards! I love you all."
Catch her while you can. NeNe will appear in Chicago through December 20.
