Family breaky before I fly to NYC- they decked me out in Cinderella gear. I don't think they expected...
'Call Me Maybe' singer Carly Rae Jepsen to replace Tony nominee Laura Osnes in Rodgers & Hammerstein's CINDERELLA, currently playing on Broadway. Jepsen will step into the role on Feb. 4 for a limited 12-week run. Jepsen began performing in musical theater in high school, starring in Annie, The Wiz and Grease before attending the Canadian College of Performing Arts. "It was essentially musical theater training with studies in singing, dancing and acting," said Jepsen. "My favorite part of the school year was our trip to New York, where we met Broadway performers and toured the theaters."
Canadian singer/songwriter Jepsen has taken America by storm after bursting onto the scene in the US with her hit single "Call Me Maybe." Unforgettably catchy, the hit song which she co-wrote quickly rose to the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 chart where it remained for nine consecutive weeks. The song is also an international sensation, climbing to No. 1 on the iTunes Singles charts in over 47 countries while the song has sold over 17 million singles worldwide to date.
