by at . Comments

Vanessa Hudgens is about to take a major career step.

The former High School Musical star will soon put on her singing-and-dancing shoes again, but she'll do it a production of a Tony-winning musical: Hudgens has signed on to play Mimi, a dancer with HIV, in an upcoming production of Rent.

The play is will run on August 6, 7 and 8 at the Hollywood Bowl. It will be directed by Neil Patrick Harris, who has nothing but praise Vanessa. He 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."
