Keke Palmer is Headed to Broadway

KEKE PALMER BLACK CINDERELLA

Actress and newly minted talk show hostess Keke Palmer is headed to Broadway.

According to published reports Keke will be stepping into the role of Cinderella for “Rogers & Hammerstein’s Ciderella,” starting September 9th at the Broadway Theatre.

The 21-year old beauty will become the first African American actress to take on the role, which will have her donning a glass slipper for eight shows a week.


Keke will take on the role while her BET talk show “Just Keke” is on hiatus. After a successful eight week run the show is expected to be renewed and start airing new episodes in early 2015. The show averaged just over 2 million viewers per episode and featured such high profile guests as Brandy, Queen Latifah, Kevin Hart and Karrueche Tran.

Also on tap for Keke is a stint on the upcoming season of “Masters of Sex,” as well as a starring role in the Drew Barrymore-produced horror flick “Animal.”
