Sherri Shepherd took Broadway by storm this week as she took on the role of the wicked stepmother in the Rodgers & Hammerstein musical Cinderella.
This marks Sherri’s first turn on Broadway after getting her feet wet starring in Love, Loss, and What I Wore off-Broadway. Also joining the cast is 21-year-old sensation Keke Palmer. Taking on the titular role, Palmer adds Broadway to her already impressive list of achievements which includes TV and film roles along with her daytime talk show.
The duo made history, becoming the first African Americans to play the mother and daughter roles in Cinderella, which first premiered as a TV special in 1957 starring Julie Andrews. The current production opened last year and received 9 Tony nominations.
Sherri Shepherd continues to show her versatility. From acting on TV and film to co-hosting The View, to Dancing With the Stars, books, stand-up comedy, and now Broadway – this lady can do it all! Congrats Sherri!
