    So Kandi and Lavon Fisher-Wilson will both be playing Matron “Mama” Morton. Is this at the same time, or is one playing in the matinee and the other one playing in the evening?

    One of the best shows I’ve ever seen. Angie Stone was Mama Morton when I saw it.
    If Nene can do it, I’m sure Kandi can pull it off.

    Never seen it live. Only the movie version. Good for Kandi though.

    Congratulations Kandi!
