Carly Rae Jepsen is about to become a princess — on Broadway, that is. Taking the role of Cinderella in “Rodgers + Hammerstein’s Cinderella,” Jepsen will make her debut beginning February 4 for a 12 week run. Jepsen is no stranger to theater, having starred in classics such as “Grease” and “Annie” in high school before attending the Canadian College of Performing Arts. For her upcoming role, she will perform alongside Fran Drescher, who will play Cinderella’s stepmother.
“Broadway has been a dream of mine since I was a little girl and I look forward to working with this incredibly talented cast to tell this classic tale,” said Jepsen, “These last few years have been a real fairy tale come to life for me, so I feel especially blessed to play this part and be reminded that you must never stop dreaming!”
