@banksxo16 Broadway has two new princesses! Pop star, Carly Rae Jepsen, and Emmy nominee, Fran Drescher, stopped by Katie Couric’s show to talk about their Broadway debuts in Cinderella. The two stars also shared some moments from behind the scenes and rehearsals. According to Popdust, the “Call Me Maybe” singer, who plays the lead role of Cinderella, shared, “About three days before we opened [the show], I was on my way down [the stairs] and they’re like ‘so, basically, you run down these steps and there’s an X, there’s a spotlight. Leave the shoe here and keep going. I’m like, ‘is there any trick to it?’ ‘No, no, you just slip it off and wiggle and keep running.’" Jepsen continued, "So, I do. I think I've managed it, and I'm pretty proud of myself." However, things with the legendary slipper have not always been easy for the singer, who also admitted, "For a split second, I think I saw a bird in the theater, but it ended up being my shoe had hooked onto my big toe, and I had catapulted the shoe into the audience." Drescher, who stars as Madame, also talked about her boyfriend, Shiva Ayyadurai, saying, “I finally have a Valentine. He invented email…kachink, kachink.” The Broadway run of Cinderella features music and lyrics by musical greats Rogers & Hammerstein, and opened earlier this month. Check out what else the two had to say when the episode of Katie premieres on Valentine’s Day!
