Keke Palmer made her debut last night as Cinderella in the Broadway production of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s “Cinderella.” Palmer became the first black Cinderella in the production’s history on Broadway.

Also making her debut last night was actress-comedian Sherri Shepherd who played Madame, a.k.a. The Wicked Stepmother. Shepherd will be playing the role until Nov. 25 when the role will be taken over by NeNe Leakes of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta.”

The production, which opened two years ago, is scheduled to close Jan. 3, 2015.

Here are some photos of the cast, including an emotional Palmer, from the opening night curtain call.
