Keke Palmer Steps Into ‘Cinderella’s’ Slipper on Broadway

Keke Palmer is stepping into new shoes and making history with her Broadway debut in “Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Cinderella.” Her performance will mark the first time a black actress will play the role on Broadway.

Palmer will take the reigns from Cindy Paige Faure starting Sept. 9.

The 20-year-old Illinois native was in the spotlight earlier this year when “Just Keke” premiered on June 30 on BET, making her one of the youngest stars to ever host her own talk show.
