Vanessa Hudgens will play Mimi, an HIV-positive dancer, in a new production of Renttaking center stage at the world-famous Hollywood Bowl this August.

The production marks the stage directorial debut of good-natured entertainer Neil Patrick Harris, who starred in the Los Angeles production of the Tony Award-winning musical in 1997.

On casting the High School Musical alum, NPH says: “She came in for a work session, and I must say, Vanessa really impressed. She looks amazing, has great vocal chops, and seems really committed to honoring the somewhat iconic role of Mimi. I look forward to audiences seeing a dark, edgy, and very different side of Vanessa Hudgens this August.”

The musical runs in Los Angeles from August 6-8.
