I have added some production stills of Vanessa from Gigi (thanks to Renee) and a couple of posters to the gallery.
Tickets are now on sale to see Vanessa Hudgens make her Broadway debut in Gigi.
Hudgens stars in the revival as a vivacious young woman coming of age in turn of the century Paris. The score by Alan Jay Lerner and Frederick Loewe includes such classics as “Thank Heaven for Little Girls,” “The Night They Invented Champagne” and “I Remember It Well.” Co-starring alongside Hudgens are Corey Cott (Newsies) as Gaston, Tony winner Victoria Clark (Cinderella) as Mamita and Tony nominee Howard McGillin (The Phantom of the Opera) as Honore.
Gigi begins previews on March 19 at the Neil Simon Theatre with an opening night set for April 8. Get tickets!

Following in the footsteps of NBC’s “Peter Pan: Live,” FOX has announced “Dancing With the Stars” judge Julianne Hough and “High School Musical” star Vanessa Hudgens are set to star in “Grease: Live.”
The two will play Sandy and Rizzo in the live musical event for the network being produced by Marc Platt (“Into The Woods”). “Grease: Live” will be a live television production of “Grease” that will provide a new take on the classic musical for a new generation.
“‘Grease’ is one of the movies that made me want to be an entertainer, and I have literally been waiting my whole life to play Sandy,” Hough says in a statement. “My siblings and I watched it and played it out over and over when we were kids. This is my dream role and performing it live on television will be one of the most thrilling opportunities I’ve had in my career so far.”
Adds Hudgens, “Being Rizzo is something I’ve never imagined, and I love that because it will be a new challenge. She is such an iconic character that continues to transcend generations. I cannot wait to bring her to life on live television. I’m going to be a Pink Lady!”
“Grease: Live” is set to air January 31, 2016 on FOX.
As BroadwayWorld previously reported, High School Musical’s Vanessa Hudgens is coming to Broadway in the upcoming Broadway revival of Jay Lerner and Frederick Loewe’s Gigi. The production will open in a pre-Broadway tryout at the Kennedy Center. According to the Washington Post, Hudgens had a head cold on the first day of rehearsal, but never considered skipping the first rehearsal because of it. Hudgens said, “You can’t miss the first day of school.”
The article also quoted cast members praising Hudgens’ attitude and disposition. Tony Award winner Victoria Clark commented, “She is literally the warmest, sweetest person in the world.”
Set in the magical world of La Belle Epoque in turn-of-the-century Paris, Gigi is a timeless romantic comedy about a young woman groomed in the custom of her family to be a companion to a bored, wealthy playboy, until the two unexpectedly realize this is in fact true love.
This year marks the 40th Anniversary of the debut of Gigi on Broadway. Lerner and Loewe’s Tony Award-winning score was first heard in the 9-time Academy Award-winning Best Picture of the same name, directed by Vincente Minnelli. The movie, which was the last of the classic MGM musicals, was based on the Broadway play by Anita Loos and the popular novella by Colette.
