New Cinderella Star Keke Palmer Talks Bringing a Fairy Tale to Life

first_img View Comments Cinderella Film and TV star. Recording Artist. Talk show host. Now, Broadway princess! Keke Palmer, donning the iconic ball gown, took her first bow in Cinderella on September 9, becoming the first African American to play the titular princess on Broadway. And how does it feel? “This is crazy. THIS IS CRAZY, GIRL!” she said in a recent interview on NBC Nightly News. Well, at least she’s excited. Palmer explained that an African American actress in the role lets audiences know “that just because you have never seen it doesn’t mean that you can’t be it.” A message certainly reminiscent of the familiar fairy tale. Congratulations to Palmer on her Great White Way debut, and here’s to many more lovely nights at the Broadway Theatre! Check out the clip below, which includes a taste of the new star singing the classic Rodgers and Hammerstein score.
