On November 25, The Real Housewives of Atlanta and Glee actress NeNe Leakes made her debut as the wicked stepmother in Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella on Broadway for its final run. (It will end on January 3 after two years.) The reality star took over Sherri Shepherd’s role.
Backstage at the show, Hot 97’s TT Torrez spoke with NeNe about the new venture, who revealed it was a little overwhelming at first.
“It was sort of like a blur to me,” NeNe said to TT. “We’ve been rehearsing for a really long time. I love theater, but this was a new experience. I was kind of thrown into a cast that was already existing, so I had to come out and co-exist with them.”
