Keke Palmer Making Broadway Debut in 'Cinderella' This Fall!

Keke Palmer will be making her Broadway debut in the title role of Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Cinderella!

“I have an infinite amount of gratitude to show, I am thankful to be able to do this and excited for the discipline it will bring,” the 21-year-old actress said in a statement about her new role.

Keke will be the youngest woman to play Cinderella on Broadway. She is also the first African-American woman to play the role on stage. The production previously had Carly Rae Jepsen starring in the role, which was originated by Laura Osnes.

    She’s a talented actress and singer, so I think she’ll do a good job. This is a much more logical choice than Carly Rae Jepsen was. That was a disappointing performance that I spent my hard earned money to see when I was in New York.
