Nicole Scherzinger’s post-”Dancing With the Stars” dance card is looking rather full. She’s just signed on to portray Maureen in Neil Patrick Harris’ production of “RENT” at the Hollywood Bowl this August.
She joins Vanessa Hudgens, Wayne Brady, and “Gossip Girl’s” Aaron Tveit in the cast. The role of Maureen was originated by “Glee’s” Idina Menzel, both in the original Broadway Production and in the 2005 film adaptation. Tracy Thoms will play Joanne, Maureen’s lover.
In addition to “RENT,” Scherzinger will return to NBC’s “The Sing Off,” where she’ll judge a cappella groups alongside Ben Folds and Shawn Stockman. The show’s final open casting call is Saturday, June 6 in Los Angeles.
