The classic fairy tale Cinderella is now on Broadway. Rodgers and Hammerstein's Cinderella made its television debut in 1957 with Julie Andrews as the girl whose wish came true. The TV Musical was seen by over 100 million people and nominated for two Emmy awards. There have been several made-for-TV remakes (including one starring Brandy and Whitney Houston) but it's not until 2013 that this award-winning musical has finally gotten the Broadway treatment.
Cinderella lived happily with her father until his untimely death. Left in the charge of her stepmother, Cinderella is forced to tend to wants and needs of her stepmother and stepsisters. With the help of a fairy godmother, Cinderella is transforms into a beautiful maiden and wins the heart of her prince charming. But if you think you know the Cinderella story, this delightful musical adds a couple twists to freshen it up a bit.
Girls - the target audience - will love this show. It features all their favorite characters from the classic tale, beautiful scenery, a fantastic repetoire of music by Rodgers and Hammerstein, and, of course, Cinderella's dresses steal the show.
Tony Award-nominee Laura Osnes (Bonnie & Clyde) stars as Cinderella, Santino Fontana is The Prince, Tony winner Victoria Clark is the Fairy Godmother, and Tony winner Harriet Harris is Cinderella's stepmother. Cinderella also stars Ann Harada and Marla Mindelle as Cinderella's stepsisters.
