File-This photo taken April 19, 2012 shows Canadian singer, Carly Rae Jepsen, posing for photographs following an APTN interview at the Landmark Hotel, London. Jepsen has been called by Broadway. Producers of "Rodgers + Hammerstein's Cinderella" said Sunday that the Canadian singer-songwriter will take over the role of Cinderella starting Feb. 4 for 12 weeks. She’ll take over from Tony Award nominee Laura Osnes. Jepsen, a Grammy Award nominee, began performing in musical theater in high school, starring in “Annie,” “The Wiz” and “Grease” before attending the Canadian College of Performing Arts. She’ll be joining the cast alongside Fran Drescher paying Cinderella's stepmother. Drescher, an Emmy Award winner for "The Nanny," takes over the Harriet Harris’ role. The Tony-nominated musical has been given a makeover by Douglas Carter Beane, who has turned the fairy tale into a charming, witty story updated for a new generation.
