THIS IS NO ROGERS AND HAMMERSTEIN CINDERALLA

I was disappointed with the production. I expected the play to appeal to all ages. The Papermill Playhouse adaptation missed the mark. I did not think the social justice messages were presented in a manner that was appropriate for the youngsters in my family. A nine year old girl at the show wanted to know why Jean-Michel was a character in the timeless Cinderella story ---- she was puzzled and annoyed with him. And then the glass slippers ------ a major twist from the fairy tale we all know and poorly presented (written) at best. In all a shameful adaptation and presentation of a classic. Oscar Hammerstein was quoted as saying "We want the kids who see it to recognize the story they know. Children can be very critical on that score. But, of course, their parents will be watching too, so we have tried to humanize the characters without altering the familiar plot structure." Well on the first point the Papermill Playhouse version failed and on the second point the adaptation was a slap in the face to the genius of Oscar and Hammerstein and their commentary of societal issues (ie. South Pacific, The King and I, etc.).
