Reassuringly old-fashioned and refreshingly irreverent, sentimental and snarky, sincere and ironic, all at once!

if you wanted same old....,
Feb 23, 2013
reviewer: from Chicago
then watch the tv version. The updating was smart, lighthearted, and overall charming. The casting and acting were all top notch Broadway. Truly inspired sets and costumes. The show got better and better as it went along. Brilliant scene changes as well.Never thought the least compelling part of the show would be the occasional clunker from R&H songbook.Give up your expectations for a stodgy rerun and have a good time.

Captivating MUST SEE,
Feb 24, 2013
reviewer: from New York, New York
This "updated" version of Cinderella is enchanting and beautiful. Rodgers and Hammerstein's winning score is delivered wonderfully by the vocals of Laura Osnes, Santino Fontana, Victoria Clarke, Harriet Harris and a strong supporting supporting cast. The costumes and sets are amazing; vivid, captivating and you will definitely wonder how images change before your eyes! I loved the story "updates" which give Cinderella a new life and a very joyous ending. If you are a fan of the TV version of Cinderella (I've always enjoyed the Lesley Ann Warren version) you will not be disappointed. Great and well worth the price of admission!

Amazing,
Feb 25, 2013
reviewer: from Lubbock. Texas
We have watched numerous broadway productions and loved this one! While I went with my husband, we remarked numerous times how much our 4 year old daughter would have loved it. It is not the exact Disney remake and I didn't expect it to be. The performers were amazing and the set was wonderful.

A truly magical Broadway musical!,
Feb 25, 2013
reviewer: from Washington DC.
This show was amazing. The actors were top notch, the sets and costumes were amazing, songs were amazing, of course from R&H, the choreography and direction was very well done, and the updated book by Douglas Carter Beane was funny and lighthearted in the right ways. The transformations alone are worth the ticket price. Take your children and take them with you to see what a real Broadway musical looks like. Run don't walk

All Ages Astonished,
Feb 26, 2013
reviewer: from York, PA
I saw the production with my family this weekend -- all of whom are familiar with the 1950s/1960s versions of the R&H production -- and from 11 years old to 73 years old, we all absolutely LOVED it -- my 11-year-old niece sitting next to me actually gasped in awe countless times throughout the show! Laura Osnes was born to play the role of Cinderella, and Victoria Clark's fairy godmother was sung and acted beautifully. Harriet Harris and Ann Harada were charming as the "evil" characters, and Santino Fontana was great as the prince. I'm not sure what show some of the negative reviewers saw, but it certainly wasn't the same one I saw. This show should be around for a long time -- one of the best family-friendly shows running in New York right now.
