Dove Cameron, a 2018 Daytime Emmy winner for Disney Channel’s Liv and Maddie, will take the lead in the upcoming Off Broadway production of Clueless: The Musical.
Cameron, sources close to the production say, will play Cher, the role that made a star of Alicia Silverstone back in ’95. The new musical version, with a book by the original’s screenwriter and director Amy Heckerling, direction by Kristin Hanggi (Rock of Ages) with choreography by Kelly Devine (Come from Away), is set for a limited engagement beginning Nov. 20 and running through January 13.
It’s been a good year for the 22-year-old Cameron, who won her Liv and Maddie Emmy for Outstanding Performer in a Children’s, Preschool Children’s or Educational and Informational Program, and got a recurring role on ABC’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. She’ll return for the third installment in Disney Channel’s Descendants musical series next year (directed by Kenny Ortega).
