Kandi Burruss’ Play “A Mother’s Love” Cancelled
We had high hopes for Kandi Burrus’ play “A Mother’s Love” but sadly, the show came to an end after bad business on the promoter’s end. After hitting three cities out of 30, “A Mother’s Love” was suddenly cancelled.
“We rehearsed tirelessly for weeks. To top it off, the pay we received for rehearsal was so menial, that we all basically gave weeks of our time away for free. To put in all this work, only perform 1 week, then the entire tour gets cancelled is all a little too abrupt for me. No tea no shade, I am really over here feeling like somebody owes me some more got damn money. Straight up, I feel like I have put in way more time than I was compensated for, and I want my damn money. We all know how these things end. I can sing wanting more money until the Saints come marching in, but I’ll never get it. So I’m left with no other choice but to move the hell on with life.,” wrote FunkyDineva on his blog.
Kandi posted this message on Instagram:
I licensed A Mother’s Love to A promoter with high expectations of finally seeing my creation go on the road and I am very saddened and frustrated by the cancellation of the tour. More than that my heart goes out to the cast who all are AMAZINGLY talented. We really worked hard to put together an awesome show. It breaks my heart that we wont be able to put on this show for my fans who have bought tickets, & who all were looking forward to seeing it. I stand with them in disbelief and despair that this has happened and was caught off guard as well. I want to thank everyone who have supported all of the projects I have worked on. I hope you understand that the cancellation was beyond my control. Please don’t hold it against me! I know that a lot of tickets were sold & from what I understand they will be refunded. Thank you to all the people who tweeted showing excitement for the show & sending love my way. I was suppose to be headed to Detroit this weekend & to find out that we’re not going kills me. To all the fans who volunteered to be on the street teams promoting the show I promise to make it up to you! I love you guys! Thanks for your love & understanding. Much Love, Kandi
