Vanessa Hudgens Books 'Gigi' Lead Role!

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.

Congrats, Vanessa!

    This is pretty old news about Vanessa being cast as Gigi, but I’m still proud of her and so amazed by the versatility she has and that she isn’t just going by one genre or typecast. She’s a growing actress and still learns new things and is still so optimistic about life and love. I really do admire this beautiful woman!!! Congrats to Vanessa :)

    Don’t waste your money to go see her. She can’t act or sing worth a darm. This is the only job she can get.
