Fran Drescher is amazing in this!!, Mar 13, 2014
reviewer: Nicole D. from New York, New York (I actually live in San Antonio Texas)
When I was deciding what show to see I picked this one along with some other
shows at random not knowing about the fact that my /the Queen of comedy
Fran Drescher was gonna be on stage just a couple feet in front of me!!! In her
own words from her hit show the Nanny I was "Plotzing". Other than me totally
"fan-girlling" over Fran, I can honestly say that her performance and the
performance of the rest of the cast and everyone involved in the production was
absolutely wonderful and truly captivating to the eyes, of course my eyes were
glued to Fran, but I mean the rest was just as captivating.

Lovely!!!, Aug 12, 2013
reviewer: Anonymous from New York, New York
Thanks to the entire cast and all those who worked on this marvelous production! As a child, I watched the t.v. version with Lesley-Anne Warren so many times that I know the lyrics to all of the songs. The new Broadway version is enchanting, lighthearted and the set and costume changes nothing short of enchanting. Beautiful singing, dancing and those glass slippers - sigh! Thanks for a magical night - my entire family loved it!!!

If it isn't broke, Feb 28, 2013
reviewer: Sharon from New York, New York
I went to see the show last night. The orignal book by Oscar Hammerstein which I knew and loved was barely there. This version tinkered too much with the original story. Gone were the King and Queen replaced by Lord Pendelton and Jean Michel. Neither character is worthy of being included in the story. Pendelton competes with the Evil Stepmother to see who is more evil. Jean Michel is a bore. Ella as she is known here never "looses" her slipper and the scene of the trying on of the slipper was bland. The political add on was awkward to say the least. One star for the young lady who played Ella with such poise. Ella's dresses were more like a little girl's dress up trunk than a costume befitting Cinderella. Singing and dancing were good but the story line change was a big disappointment.

If it ain't broke why make flawed atttempts to fix it, Feb 27, 2013
reviewer: Paisley from Long Island, New York
I saw the show opening night with a friend, a generation gap between us. The costumes,cast, singing voices (the announcer: The Prince is having a ball... was a standout.)sets, orchestra, lighting and special effects truly rated a 5! However, the needless "updating" was ridiculous. The "updates" were stolen from Harry Potter,(yes, the Brothers Grimm did it first and best)It was a nice touch that one of the step sisters wasn't much of a bad egg after all, but the scene stealing Ann Harada's step sister was a rip off of Melissa Mc Carthy's "Bridesmaids' character. For young girls growing up with this version of the prince, I feel sorry for them. The Prince is clueless, and needs Ella to clue him into what's really going on in his kingdom.Rodgers and Hammerstein, people not Disney. If being a 21st century sophisticate means stealing from other works and throwing in political garbage, count me out. Cinderella is a FAIRY TALE, don't we live with enough reality these days.
