Vanessa Hudgens to Star in Broadway Revival of ‘Gigi’
The 25-year-old High School Musical actress just announced that she’ll be playing the title role in the revival of Gigi. The musical will head to Washington, D.C. at the beginning of 2015 and then it will move to New York City. Read on for more details!
Starting on Jan. 16, Vanessa and the Gigi cast will hit the stage at the Kennedy Center. The production will remain in Washington, D.C. until Feb. 12. Then a move to Broadway is planned for the show but no date has been released just yet.
In the original 1951 production, Vanessa’s character was played by Audrey Hepburn! So, Vanessa has some big shoes to fill, but she seems ready to take on the challenge! She sent out a tweet confirming the news, telling followers she’s “so excited to play Gigi.”
