From BW to the CW: Alumna Cast as Super Hero

From Bagley Road to Broadway, now Broadway to Hollywood, BW Music Theatre grad, Ciara Renée '13, is already cemented in the spotlight and it all started when she was a student in the Conservatory of Music.

After starring in The Hunchback of Notre Dame as Esmeralda, Renée has picked up a new creative project as "Hawkgirl" in the upcoming CW Flash-Arrow spin-off series. "Hawkgirl", as reported by Entertainment Weekly, "is known for being one of DC Comics’ first female superheroes." Part of the character involves wings that extend from her back when angry.

After her Broadway debut in Big Fish in 2013, Renée also starred in the Broadway revival of Pippin as the Leading Player.

Although not much has been revealed about the CW series, be sure to watch this BW grad spread her wings as "Hawkgirl" and fight villains in the Flash-Arrow spin-off soon.
