Re-released and digitally remastered by Shout! Factory, Cinderella debuted as the #1 Best Seller on the Musical DVD charts its first week of release.
Academy Award® nominee Lesley Ann Warren is charming as the raggedy waif turned belle of the ball with Broadway star Stuart Damon (also well-known for his role on General Hospital) as the Prince. Also starring Oscar® nominee Walter Pidgeon and Academy Award® winners Ginger Rogers and Celeste Holm, Cinderella will waltz into the hearts of the entire family and live happily ever after as one of the most irresistible musicals ever made.
The 1965 remake of the original 1957 version (which starred Julie Andrews) was filmed on videotape, it enjoyed repeated airings throughout the 1960's and 1970's. Richard Rodgers was on board as Executive Producer, and he sanctioned the addition of a couple of Rodgers & Hammerstein songs to the score - most notably "Loneliness of Evening."

With its fresh, new take on the beloved tale of a young woman who is transformed from a chambermaid into a princess, this hilarious and romantic Cinderella combines the story's classic elements - glass slippers, pumpkin, a beautiful ball and more - with some surprise twists. More than just a pretty face with the right shoe size, the Cinderella of the Rodgers & Hammerstein musical now on Broadway is a surprisingly contemporary figure living in a fairytale setting: a spirited young woman with savvy and soul, eager to develop a world view, she doesn't let her rags or her gowns trip her up in her quest for kindness, compassion and forgiveness. She not only fights for her own dreams, but makes the prince, who falls in love with her, open his eyes to the world around him and realize his dreams, too.
