According to Entertainment Weekly, Benoist’s limited run ends August 4.

“The stage has always felt like home to me, and the fact that I will be joining the amazingly talented Beautiful family for my Broadway debut is wish fulfillment at its finest,” the actress said in a statement. “Carole’s music was a mainstay in my household growing up, like it was for so many people. It will be an honor and a pleasure to sing her music and portray her inspiring resilience to audiences every night.”

The musical is playing at New York’s Stephen Sondheim Theatre. Supergirl airs Mondays (8 p.m. ET) on the CW.
