Vanessa Hudgens, Corey Cott, Victoria Clark, Kate Burton & More Set for NYC Reading of Broadway-Bound GIGI

As BroadwayWorld previously reported, Gigi is heading back to Broadway. The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts will soon present the pre-Broadway engagement of Gigi featuring a re-envisioned book by Heidi Thomas with direction by Eric Schaeffer, running January 17-February 15 at Eisenhower Theater.

BroadwayWorld has just learned that a New York CIty reading will soon take place, starring: Vanessa Hudgens, Corey Cott, Victoria Clark, Kate Burton, Steffanie Leigh and Howard McGillin. Casting for the Kennedy Center production has not yet been announced.

Thank heaven! A Gigi like you've never seen! Alan Jay Lerner and Frederick Loewe's celebrated musical will play a pre-Broadway engagement at the Kennedy Center in a new production directed by Eric Schaeffer (Follies, Million Dollar Quartet) with an entirely re-envisioned book by acclaimed British playwright and Emmy-nominated screenwriter Heidi Thomas ("Cranford," "Upstairs Downstairs," "Call the Midwife").

Set in turn-of-the-century Paris, Gigi is a romantic musical comedy about a young woman coming of age in the magical world of La Belle E?poque where fashion, glamour, and passion prevail. When she finds true love with a wealthy young playboy, both must overcome their circumstances to create a future together.

With an enchanting score, Gigi features such numbers as "Thank Heaven for Little Girls," "I Remember it Well," and "The Night They Invented Champagne." First a novella by Colette, Gigi evolved from a play starring an unknown Audrey Hepburn, to the nine-time Academy Award®-winning Best Picture starring Leslie Caron, and then a Tony Award®-winning Broadway musical.
