With the critically-acclaimed stage play A Mother’s Love just weeks away from embarking on its first national run; Executive Producers Kandi Burruss and Todd Tucker, alongside Theatrical Works Live are proud to reveal the star-studded cast that will bring this loosely biographical family drama to audiences in 29 cities this fall.
Burruss will reprise her turn as the main character, a rising singer and member of a girl group who struggles to find the balance between honoring her relationship with her mother and making her own decisions as her career and love life evolve. On selected dates, American Idol alum LaToya London will appear as a special guest in the female lead role.
Also returning are powerhouse vocalist Shirley Murdock; renowned stage actress Chandra Currelley-Young of Tyler Perry’s For Better or Worse; platinum-selling and Grammy nominated singer Q Parker (of 112 fame) as the male lead and Kandi’s love interest; and supporting cast members D. Woods (formerly of the platinum-selling girl group Danity Kane); former NFL linebacker Olrick Johnson, and popular social media personality Quentin Latham (better known as FunkyDineva). Rounding out the touring cast are Anthony Dalton (of Tyler Perry’s Laugh to Keep from Crying ), “R&B Divas” star Meelah Williams, singer Tony Terry and Myra Beasley (of Tyler Perry’s The Marriage Counselor ).
“I’m excited to be able to partner with the amazing team at Theatrical Works Live to take ‘A Mother’s Love’ on the road,” said Burruss. “We worked extremely hard on our initial run of the show in Atlanta, and to be able to take it on the road and share it with people across the United States, is a feeling that is beyond words.”
Along with new cast members, the national presentation of “A Mother’s Love” also boasts a revamped script and several set changes as well, making this run of 29 dates a totally different experience from the original offering in Atlanta. The play’s national tour kicks off in Columbus, GA on September 4 and will come to a close in New York City on December 14.
