Beautie Brownie KeKe Palmer will make history next month when she joins the Rogers + Hammerstein’s Cinderella family on Broadway as the first Black Cinderella. She'll step into the title role starting Sept. 9 at the Broadway Theatre.
"UNDERSTAND ME WHEN I SAY THIS: You can do anything you want to do! Your life is your life & your belief in YOU will make it all it can be! Don't stop at anything, spread LOVE & allow God to guide you, bless you all! Let your light shine my angels!"
The producers of "Rodgers & Hammerstein's Cinderella" have always been colorblind about casting the show, which Actors Equity honored for excellence in diversity on Broadway last year.
"We've always just cast the best people for the parts. Sometimes they're African-American, sometimes they're Latino, sometimes Asian-American," Goodman said. "It's wonderful when it works out and we've finally found our Cinderella."
Hope we are able to see her performance! http://www.cinderellaonbroadway.com/
Go Beautie Brownie!!!
