Nearly 50 years after Leslie Caron captured hearts in the film "Gigi," actress Vanessa Hudgens is tackling the role in her Broadway debut in a more modern musical version of the French story.Caron played the young girl being groomed to become a courtesan in 1900 Paris in the 1958 film. It won nine Oscars, including best picture and best director for Vincente Minnelli.Hudgens, the 26-year-old former Disney star who gained fame as the studious good girl in the "High School Musical" films, blossoms from a naive schoolgirl into a beautiful young woman under the tutelage of her grandmother and aunt, in the role played by Audrey Hepburn in the 1951 stage play.
