Vanessa Hudgens is headed back to the stage — as Gigi!
The 25-year-old actress was announced as the lead from the producers of the play, which will have a “pre-Broadway” tryout at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C., starting on January 16, 2015, with Eric Schaeffer directing and Joshua Bergasse choreographing.
“So excited to play Gigi in @GigiOnBroadway! I hope y’all will have a chance to see me in it when we open at @kencen!!” Vanessa tweeted in excitement.
Gigi, which Leslie Caron brought to life on the big screen in 1958, follows a rich playboy and a youthful courtesan-in-training enjoying a platonic friendship, but it may not stay platonic for long.
