Transcript for Carly Rae Jepsen is Broadway Bound
Who can forget this song "Call me maybe." The unforgettable smash. Was sear thood our brains. Launched Carly Rae Jepsen into superstardom and the artist is Broadway bound taking on the title role in Rodgers & hammerstein's "Cinderella" and we went backstage for a sneak peek. Hi, "Gma." Welcome to the theater. Today I'm going to take you behind the scenes of "Cinderella" on Broadway. Let's go. Here we are backstage. There are so many moving parts. It's like a well-oiled machine. This is the beautiful horse and carriage, a set piece from one of my favorite scenes in the entire musical. ♪ This is prince charming. New prince charming. We're both new and nicknamed ourselves new kids on the block. With Fran Drescher and the rest of them. We've been dancing and doing a lot of lifts and a look at the beautiful gowns. Over 300 dresses. Joe doesn't just is to carry me but me and the dress. I'll take you into the wig room now. This is Jeannette Harrington. There's about 40 willings in the show. Cinderella has five wigs. This is kind of similar to the type of wig that I'm doing. Yes, absolutely. No fringe. Brave new world. Thanks for exploring backstage with me. I'm really looking forward to taking on the role of Cinderella and I hope you all come and see it. Yay. The shoe does fit. It's pretty. The slipper fits, yay. So good to have Carly Rae Jepsen with us. Last time we saw you you were singing during our summer concert series. Yes, yes. Nice to have you back. Is it true you dreamed of playing Cinderella since you were a little girl. I dreamed of playing on Broadway. Cinderella is a dream role. I didn't take it that far. I thought maybe I'd be maid number three. You've been posting pictures on your instagram. How much practice are you doing every day? Well, it's funny. A lot of people have asked me since I've been to New York, have you seen any sights? Any great plays? I am only doing this. E eating and sleeping Cinderella. Gratifying. That's what I was going to ask. You've toured with Justin Bieber and done the concert thing. Is this harder than the rock tar role? It's different. It's taking on a character and feel very lucky. Very fortunate, everyone who I met on the Broadway team has just been there to guide me and teach me and kind of be patient when I don't understand something right away surrounded about I a lot of professionals helping me prepare for the role. I understand the role has been tweaked just a little bit because the music has stayed the same but the speaking parts have changed a bit. Can you tell me about ha. No, the speaking parts are the same. They are? Yes, they are. Is it a story -- fuss like we know the fairy tale to be. The whole concept is one of those things you'll have to Cole and see. I'm not supposed to give away the secret. I think that's what you mean. I was confused. Sorry. Forgive me. You are forgiven for any transgression. 17 million copies of "Call me maybe." Unbelievable. You said you're going to do a three-month run and this time then it's time to get back in the studio. Record number two which is really exciting. Grateful for a little bit of a break. I guess this was kind of my vacation. You haven't seen a street outside of the theater. There's nothing more than I enjoy than being a part of this. Such a -- very charming story. I have seen the story seven times and I've cried every single time. I'm a romantic at heart. Romantic sucker an I think that, yeah, it's going to be cool to kind of take over a role for awhile and get back to music right after that. Quickly for your fans how far along are you on the new record? I'm still in writing mode so I'm kind of just in the thick of the creative process but I have to be say being in New York it's inspiring. Is there the next "Call me maybe." I hope not. I loved doing it and it was a fun experience but looking forward to trying some new adventures. Will you change your sound. I think I'm always doing that from every cd. There's always a bit of a metamorphosis of sorts. Make sure you have pizza while in New York. Pizza. Classic. I haven't had the bagels yet. I've heard good things. You haven't had a bagel. How long have you been in new York? Okay. I'll do it tomorrow. Yeah. A lot of things, make time and enjoy this experience. We're so thrilled for you. Congratulations and thanks for coming back. When you get the album done, will you come sing for us. I might.
