NEW YORK (AP) — The Cinderella onstage on Broadway next Wednesday will have another Cinderella in the audience — Lesley Ann Warren.
Warren starred in the 1965 television version of "Cinderella." She is slated to attend the Sept. 23 Broadway production of "Rodgers & Hammerstein's Cinderella" and join the cast during the curtain call to sing "Ten Minutes Ago."
Says the actress: "I'm really looking forward to it."
Warren's turn as Cinderella came eight years after Julie Andrews played the part in a TV movie. The 1965 version also starred Ginger Rogers and Celeste Holm. It was a role that Warren says "changed my life."
The Broadway production stars Keke Palmer as Cinderella and Sherri Shepherd as the stepmother. It will close after the Jan. 3 performance at the Broadway Theatre.
