NeNe Leakes to make Broadway debut as wicked stepmother in 'Cinderella'

Is there such thing as an octuple-threat? Because NeNe Leakes can add another role to her stacked resume – Broadway star.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta and Glee actress has signed on to play the wicked stepmother in Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella on Broadway, from Nov. 25 to Jan. 3, 2015. Leakes will be taking over the role from the show’s current stepmother, Sherri Shepherd, and acting alongside Keke Palmer, who plays the titular character. Leakes recently came off a stint as a contestant on Dancing with the Stars, which could come in handy in case the stepmother ends up doing some wicked jazz hands.

The play also announced that it will also close its two-year run on Jan. 3, 2015.
