The 21-year-old actress will star as Mimi, a role portrayed by Rosario Dawson in the film version of Rent.
Neil told press, “She came in for a work session, and I must say, Vanessa really impressed. She looks amazing, has great vocal chops, and seems really committed to honoring the somewhat iconic role of Mimi. I look forward to audiences seeing a dark, edgy, and very different side of Vanessa Hudgens this August.”
Directed by NPH, the play will run from August 6-8 at the Hollywood Bowl in California.
