I can't wait to see the show! I got a ticket form TDF to the show on January 29. Laura Osnes is brilliant!

Cody Williams is covering the Prince and Jean-Michel, and I believe Andy Jones is the other Prince understudy. Someone in another thread said Alyssa Neeck is the understudy for Cinderella. Best guess for the Fairy Godmother understudy is Linda Mugleston, as the rest of the ensemble is much younger.

Well, if anyone is and are also comfortable telling us what they think, I hope they will. I do understand that many don't feel right commenting on an invited dress.

Am I missing something? It's one picture.
If you are referring to the costumes and such...weren't they still works in progress?

Yes kid. I am referring to the one picture. If those trees are the stage as soon as the show starts, I'm not impressed.

I kind of like it. I think it's pretty different and I'm interested to see the rest of the set and the show itself.

Commenting on an invited dress is so rude. Honestly, show some respect.

I doubt very highly that the trees shown in the provided photo are made from cardboard. I suspect you meant to imply that they appeared "flat"?

Either way, judgement much?

I was at the final dress and would normally not comment...call me a shill if you want, but f*** it, I LOVED IT.

It pretty much reminded me why I love musical theater. It was magical, romantic, and beautiful. Nothing was over produced, over staged, or over played. Just classic Rodgers and Hammerstein for a 2013 audience. The book had been updated a bit and felt completely classic with a modern sensibility. The cast was as solid as you could get. It's as charming as you could possibly want.

Like, I would go as far to say that if you don't like this production (assuming they make a few tweaks here and there during previews...act two could use a little nip and tuck) you probably shouldn't be involved in the world of musical theater. They don't make them like this anymore...and the creatives did a great job of presenting it to today's audience. I LOVED IT!

The trees interest me. Makes me want to see what they do with them especially if they're a curtain.

How are the Orchestrations? One memorable thing from the last production of Cinderella, were Andrew Lippas arrangements and Orchestrations. Have they gone the traditional or modern route with it? And is the sweetest sounds in this version?

Will everyone calm down? There has been exactly one INVITED dress and it's extremely poor form to give specifics out or answer any questions anyone here has been asking. Previews start in 18 hours. I think we can all wait that out.
