BWW Review: RODGERS & HAMMERSTEIN'S CINDERELLA is Magical Family FunBWW Review: RODGERS & HAMMERSTEIN'S CINDERELLA is Magical Family Fun
by Frank Benge - Dec 7, 2016

Rodgers & Hammerstein's CINDERELLA is a 2013 Tony Award winning stage adaptation of the 1957 musical for television starring Julie Andrews, with music by Richard Rodgers and lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II. The new book by Douglas Carter Beane is based partly on Hammerstein's original 1957 book. The piece was remade twice for television, once in 1965 and again in 1997, and was adapted for the stage in various versions prior to the 2013 Broadway adaptation. The 2013 score features several Rodgers and Hammerstein songs that weren't in any previous version, including one trunk song originally written for, but eventually cut from, South Pacific. The new songs include 'Me, Who Am I?', 'Now Is the Time', 'The Pursuit', 'Loneliness of Evening' and 'There's Music in You'. (more...)

It's now 2016 and gone are the days when a meek would-be princess sits around waiting for her prince to come, let alone even thinking about leaving a Venetian glass slipper behind. (more...)
