This season's Rodgers & Hammerstein's Cinderella marks the Broadway premiere for the celebrated musical, which was written for television in 1957 by the legendary musical theatre duo. The production has received rave reviews, including a thumbs-up from the New York Times' infamous Ben Brantley who described the show as "reassuringly old-fashioned and refreshingly irreverent, sentimental and snarky, sincere and ironic, all at once!" It's also managed to swoop in and scoop up an impressive nine 2013 Tony Award nominations, including Best Revival of a Musical.
Mr. Beane's book for Rodgers & Hammerstein's Cinderella offers a new romantic twist on the ultimate makeover story of a maid-turned-princess, mixing fresh comedy, current references and wit with the beloved tale's classic elements - the pumpkin, glass slipper, masked ball and more.
In addition to musical numbers from the original score, the show features songs from the duo's back catalogue.
