Vanessa Hudgens has graduated from High School Musical and has now moved on to the Tony Award winning, Rent!
 

The Disney darling is now starring in the Hollywood production of Rent, as a stripper in the rock musical. Vanessa's performance, as Mimi, is far from her sweet geeky character in HSM, Gabriella, but -- Vanessa has been getting great reviews for her performance.


Looks like she is working hard to diversify her career, and is really enjoying her new project! Vanessa is in great company -- Neil Patrick Harris and Dancing with The Stars champion, Nicole Scherzinger are also cast in the musical! You can catch Vanessa in her new role in Los Angeles at the Hollywood Bowl this weekend! Check out the pictures of her sultry performance.
