High School Musical star Vanessa Hudgens is to hit the high notes again as the star of Neil Patrick Harris' stage directorial debut RENT.
The actress/singer will play Mimi in the musical when it hits the Hollywood Bowl for three nights this summer (Aug10).
Neil Patrick Harris, who starred in the Los Angeles production of RENT in 1997, is thrilled to be working with Hudgens.
He says, "She came in for a work session, and I must say, Vanessa really impressed.
"She looks amazing, has great vocal chops, and seems really committed to honouring the somewhat iconic role of Mimi. I look forward to audiences seeing a dark, edgy, and very different side of Vanessa Hudgens this August."
