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

Why mess with enchantment?,
Feb 11, 2013
reviewer: from New Jersey
In all its previous incarnations, Rodgers and Hammerstein's Cinderella was a charming musical with a gently humorous book and glorious, lyrical songs (orchestrated with a subtle homage to Richard Strauss). The current Broadway version is still largely charming, beautifully sung and danced, imaginatively staged, and remarkably, magically costumed. However, the story is now bogged down by political messaging, and the score, reorchestrated without the Viennese flourishes, has been sullied by uninspired additions from the R&H canon. Producers, if you want social messaging, stage South Pacific. I'm grateful this production retained enough of Cinderella's original magic to deliver A Lovely Night of theater.

4 year old totally disappointed ,
Feb 11, 2013
reviewer: from Long Island, New York
Took my 4 year old daughter to the show. She dressed herself in the blue Cinderella gown and was so excited to see the show! Well my daughter complained the entire time saying Cinderella isn't dressed like her (her gown wasn't blue, it was white and the other was gold, "she looks like Belle" my daughter said) or looks like the Cinderella she has come to know and love. The story was so different from what she knows also. In the very beginning there is a big tree monster that terrified her to bits and she is still scared about it 2 weeks later! If I didn't take her I would probably give the show closer to 4 stars. We both loved the dresses and and the singing but again if I knew that they would change the story so much and make a political statement in the story as well I would have never taken her and just went with friends.

Brilliant,
Feb 10, 2013
reviewer: from Thornwood, New York
Everything from the opening scene to the curtain call was fantastic. The costume changes on stage were great, as I'm still trying to figure out how Ella changed into her gold dress in the blink of an eye. I thought that the cast was wonderful and Osnes was brilliant. My mother and I are huge Cinderella fans and this show had us entertained from start to finish. I would recommend this to men, woman and children of all ages. Well done!!! :)

She needed to not be flying in the finale.,
Feb 10, 2013
reviewer: from New York, New York
First of all your prince was lackluster and although they taught him the dance steps and he did them - he is not dancer. There are so many talented performers, it is odd that they settled. He is cute and charming but that is not enough. Cinderella was adequate but again there is better out there. At least she could dance. The last scene was a travesty. Everything about it was ridiculous including the fairy godmother hanging up there.
