Sarah Hyland: Just say no to Carly Rae Jepsen as Cinderella
Not everyone is happy about Carly Rae Jepsen's new role on Broadway. Find out what Modern Family's Sarah Hyland had to say.
The claws were out on Twitter on Sunday when the announcement was made that Carly Rae Jepsen would be making her Broadway debut in Rodgers + Hammerstein's Cinderella in February. One of the most vocal people about the casting choice was Modern Family star Sarah Hyland.
She took to Twitter to talk about her disappointment and she even tagged the show's current star, Laura Osnes, looking for sympathy.
It's pretty clear that the sitcom actress wasn't getting the positive response to her comments that she perhaps thought she would. She backtracked a bit.
Jepsen eventually got some social media support from Osnes who schooled the entire internet on how to behave.
It sounds like the reprimanding tweet also reached Hyland, who put out one final message about the whole Jepsen debacle.
The "Call Me Maybe" singer is scheduled to take over the role from Osnes on Feb. 4 along with The Nanny star Fran Drescher who will be playing her evil stepmother. It will be a limited engagement, though. Jepsen will only be appearing in the show for 12 weeks while Drescher will be onstage with her for 10 weeks. The move is seen by many as a way for producers to boost box office sales during a typically slow time on Broadway.
