Rodgers and Hammerstein’s “Cinderella” has returned this time to make its mark on Broadway. The role of Fairy Godmother originally played by the late Whitney Houston in the 1997 television production is a hard one to fill. Nene Leakes (Real Housewives of Atlanta) and Sherri Shepherd (The View) are willing to take on that challenge, according to RadarOnline.Com “Both ladies really want the role, and have already auditioned to land the role as Cinderella’s fairy godmother in the Broadway musical.” In a role that requires singing and choreography who would be the best fit? Nene is known for her roles on Glee and the New Normal and Sherri is known for her roles in The Jamie Foxx show, Everybody Loves Raymond and Suddenly Susan.. Sherri appears to be the more seasoned actress.
There are talks of KeKe Palmer (TLC Biopic) starring as Cinderella, Palmer originally starred as Cinderella in the Nickelodeon version “Rags”. With her previous roles combined of singing and dancing Palmer makes a great follow up to Brandy.
