Broadway's New Cinderella Is…

January 1, 2014

…Carly Rae Jepsen!

The “Call Me Maybe” singer will take over the title role of the Rodgers & Hammerstein musical on February 4.

Did you see that one coming? We didn’t, either. (And a part of our hearts will always be dedicated to the lovely, Tony-nominated Laura Osnes, who’s performed the role since the show opened last spring.) But we know the girl can sing. And maybe she’ll have great chemistry with new stepmother Fran Drescher, who’ll step into the show the same day. We’d watch that, maybe.

As always, new casting = new ghetto Photoshopping opportunities for us, yay! Cinderella with bangs—interesting:
