NeNe Leakes Makes Her Broadway Debut In ‘Cinderella’
In 2008 although she's extremely ambitious, I'm sure when NeNe Leakes was introduced to the world as a cast member on a new reality show called The Real Housewives of Atlanta, she never imagined that only six years later, she would be doing it up on Broadway!
Last night was a memorable and monumental moment for the reality star-turned-actress as she finally made her Broadway debut in Rodger & Hammerstein’s Cinderella, alongside Keke Palmer. According to the critics, NeNe nailed her role as the evil stepmother, Madame.
Keke and other celebs took to Instagram to salute NeNe. Even her co-star Joe Carroll who plays the prince gifted her with a bouquet of flowers and saluted her performance. Here's what on-lookers had to say;
I am so proud of you @neneleakes!! You came prepared & your consistent hard work shined through. I am so very proud of you, & it will only get better & better, it was already so amazing at that!! Love always
Joe Carroll (plays the prince): People have been doing this for months and years, and she comes here and was so unbelievable!
Emily B: [clapping emoji] @neneleakes .. Heyyyyy @kekepalmer [kissing emoji] awesome Job ladies #CinderellaonBroadway
The Broadway star is still overwhelmed by the tremendous amount of love and support she received last night.
Here's what NeNe herself had to say on Instagram:
Waking up this morning in a daze like what just happened! I stood before a SOLD OUT Broadway theatre screaming my name! The overwhelming amount of love & support brought me to tears! I have so many people to Thank this morning. You might get tired of me today because I will be posting lots of pictures of last Nite. I can’t believe this. Like I really can’t believe this
