She's Back! NeNe Leakes Will Return to Broadway in Chicago

Find out who the #RHOA alum will play in the iconic musical.

By Jocelyn Vena

From the ATL to Chi-Town! Real Housewives of Atlanta alum NeNe Leakes has just revealed she will tackle the legendary role of Matron “Mama” Morton in the Broadway production of Chicago. NeNe's run in the iconic musical will begin November 23 and run through December 20. Fans might remember the character from Queen Latifah's spin on the role in the 2002 film adaptation of the musical.

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of Atlanta on Peacock and the Bravo App.


And NeNe has been taking her role rather seriously, teasing on Instagram that she's been taking vocal lessons to prepare.


NeNe last appeared on the Great White Way as the Wicked Stepmother in Cinderella last year. In addition to her role in Chicago, earlier this month she revealed she will also appear on Spike's Lip Sync Battle. So much Nene, so little time!

Now we wonder what wig NeNe will wear in Chicago. We mean, as you can see below, she's never been shy to rock one.
