On February 4, 2014, Mission BC’s international pop superstar will be making her Broadway debut in the lead role of Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Cinderella for a 12-week run. Fran Drescher will be playing the cruel stepmother. Jepsen is no stranger to acting as she performed in high school productions of Annie, Grease, and The Wiz. She also attended The Canadian College of Performing Arts in Victoria. Carly chose Cinderella as her Broadway debut because she found the story hopeful and inspiring. “I’ve always been one to believe in the impossible, so I relate to her character completely.”
Jepsies (i.e. fans of Carly Rae Jepsen) needn’t worry; she is working on a new album too which she plans to release sometime in 2014. Her previous album Kiss was certified gold and won the JUNO for Album of the Year.
