Start spreading the news! Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kandi Burruss is branching out and will soon be appearing in a musical in the Big Apple.

Staring on January 13, 2014, Kandi will be part of the off-Broadway musical comedy NEWSical The Musical in NYC, according to Broadway World. Way to go, Kandi!

So what is this show all about? Well, it's a satirical musical that makes fun of latest news headlines, from pop culture to political events. Kandi will appear in the show for a two-week run.

"I am thrilled to join the cast of NEWSical The Musical," Kandi says. "Having just come off of my own musical production, NEWSical The Musical furthers my journey in entertainment to, simultaneously, do more of what I love: act and sing."

Kandi is hardly the first celeb to have had a brief stint in NEWSical. Other celebs who have appeared in the long-running production over the years have included Perez Hilton, Queer Eye's Carson Kressley, and La Toya Jackson. 

"Being a part of an illustrious list of stars that have previously joined the show is an honor," Kandi adds. We're thrilled for Kandi and wish her all the best!

Does this show seem like a good fit for Kandi? And do you think Kandi will get more acting gigs in the future?
