Dove Cameron to Make Off-Broadway Debut as Lead in Clueless: The Musical
OMG, fam! We are totally buggin’! ICYMI, the iconic ’90s flick, Clueless is being turned into a musical, and the off-Broadway production will star none other than Dove Cameron!
If you identify as a ’90s kid, chances are you know allllll about Clueless and how iconic the flick still is to this day. That’s why we were absolutely SHOOK when it was announced yesterday that the blonde would be playing the iconic role of Cher Horowitz.
The Disney star took to Instagram to confirm the news herself. Along with a screenshot of the exciting announcement, she wrote, “Life is about to get very yellow and very plaid and I am #totallybuggin.” Uhh, same girl. SAME.
For those of you who are unfamiliar with the 1995 flick, it’s about a wealthy high schooler, played by Alicia Silverstone, who tries to make the new girl at school cool. And do you want to know the best part? The musical will be written by the film’s original screenwriter! In other words, Dove and her fellow cast members will be in good hands.
Obviously, we can’t wait for DC to take the stage as Cher, but we also have to remember that this isn’t exactly her first rodeo when it comes to musical theater. Back in 2016, for example, she played Amber Von Tussle in Hairspray Live! and absolutely crushed it. Plus, it seems like this is pretty much her dream role!
Before sharing the news, Dove took to Instagram to post a photo of her bedroom with the caption, “Got a phone call & now all of a sudden I’m packing my whole life into boxes. See you next year, LA. NYC here I come.” See?
Dove was clearly stoked about something when she posted this pic, but now that we know she was cast as the legendary Cher Horowitz, it suddenly all makes sense! We’re THRILLED for her!
