Carly Rae Jepsen Twirling in Cinderella Costume for Broadway Show
Carly Rae Jepsen gave a better look at her transformation into Cinderella for upcoming Broadway show. After previously teasing in a series of rehearsal and dress-fitting pictures, the singer posted a new image that shows her wearing a ball gown complete with a tiara while giving it a twirl.
"Literally having a ball," the Canadian star captioned the photo, before hyping up her promo appearance on "Good Morning America" next week, "So excited to be on @GMA on Monday & give away a very special #Cinderella surprise to my fans! Head to 44th and B'way!"
Jepsen will make her theater stage debut in "Rodgers & Hammerstein's Cinderella" on February 4 for a limited 12-week run. She will replace Laura Osnes, who received a Tony nomination for the role. Osnes will leave the production after her yearlong run completes this month.
Fellow young star Sarah Hyland previously commented on Jepsen's casting as the rags-to-riches character, "Today's a meltdown day. Carly Rae jepsen is going to be cinderella??? On broadway???? NOT OK WITH THIS. Tell me it's gonna be ok @LauraOsnes."
The "Modern Family" actress amended her comment but didn't really backtrack it, "Hoping she will be amazing. I'm hesitant though...." She added, "Too avoid anyone assuming things? My previous tweets do not mean that I'm not a Carly Rae Jepsen fan. The end."
The "Call Me Maybe" hitmaker herself said the classic tale of Cinderella finding her Prince Charming was "so hopeful and inspiring." She explained, "I've always been one to believe in the impossible, so I relate to her character completely."
... "And I like it so well that for all I can tell I may never come down again!" @cinderellabway
