As Executive Producers Real Housewives of Atlanta star, Kandi Burruss and Todd Tucker prepare to take their stage play – “A Mother’s Love” – on the road this fall, they will do so in the capable hands of Travis Steele, Founder and CEO of Theatrical Works Live.

A man of many hats, Steele is an accomplished promoter in music, comedy and theater, having executed a wide variety of stage productions including “Peter Pan,” “One Night Only” and “Massacre At The Mill,” as well as concert tours with award winning artists like Pretty Ricky, Lil Wayne, Young Jeezy, Keyshia Cole and R. Kelly.

“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 Kandi 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.”

Unsurprisingly, the wildly successful run of “A Mother’s Love,” and its impressive

star-studded cast, recently enjoyed in front of a sold-out audience in Atlanta, prompted

a national tour alongside Burruss and Tucker.

Fittingly, the three month long tour is set to embark on its cross country run this September from Columbus, GA – Theatrical Works Live’s home since 2006. Thereafter it will appear in 29 major cities – Miami, Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, Las Vegas and New York City among them.

“This is a huge opportunity for us and we are extremely excited about it,” said Steele. “Not only that, but we’re feeling the excitement from venues all across the country. We’re happy to help Kandi and Todd take their brand to the next level.”

A veteran of the entertainment industry, evolution is nothing new to Steele, who jumpstarted his career by signing the rap group Hilltop Players to Columbia Records in 1993. From there he found his way into street promotions, which ultimately led to talent shows and other forms of live entertainment and stage plays under the Theatrical Works Live umbrella.

“A Mother’s Love” tour is slated to begin on September 4th. For tour date listings and tickets log onto: www.kandionline.com
