Keke Palmer to Play First African-American Cinderella on Broadway

 

Keke Palmer is on a roll lately. First a talk show on BET and now a lead role in Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Broadway play Cinderella.

On September 9th, Keke Palmer will make history as the first African-American Cinderella to step foot on a Broadway stage.

That’s pretty amazing.

The 21-year-0ld actress is the youngest to have a talk show on cable television. She is also famous for her role as True Jackson on the Nickelodeon show True Jackson VP.

Rumor has is that Real Housewives of Atlanta star NeNe Leakes might play alongside Palmer as the fairy godmother.

That’s gonna be one for the critics.

The play currently features Nancy Opel as Madame, Joe Carroll as Prince Topher, Tony winner Victoria Clark as Marie, Ann Harada as Charlotte, Stephanie Gibson as Gabrielle, Todd Buonopane as Jean-Michel, Peter Bartlett as Sebastian and Phumzile Sojola as Lord Pinkleton.

I can’t wait to see Keke Palmer in a ball gown and glass slippers. I’m sure she’ll make Broadway proud!
