Carly Rae Jepsen makes for a pretty convincing princess. The "Call Me Maybe" singer shared a photo of herself completely done up as Cinderella ahead of her upcoming run as the fairy-tale heroine on Broadway in "Rodgers + Hammerstein's Cinderella."
The snapshot features the singer dolled up in a big, white dress with a tiara on her head. She's mid-twirl and smiling. "Literally having a ball," she tweeted Thursday (January 16).
Her run in the show will kick off on February 4 and go for three months. She'll be taking over for Tony Award nominee Laura Osnes. She will be joined by "The Nanny" star Fran Drescher, who will play her evil stepmother. And, Jepsen is already hard at work to nail down the show's dance routines, including having to perform tracks like "Ten Minutes Ago," In My Own Little Corner" and "A Lovely Night" in the show's costumes.
The musical is based on Rogers and Hammerstein's 1957 version of the classic fairytale. It was written for television and starred musicals queen Julie Andrews. It has been remade for television two subsequent times, in 1965 with Lesley Ann Warren and again in 1997 starring Brandy. The Tony-winning show hit Broadway in 2013.
