BWW Reviews: Cercasi Cenerentola
by Nino Prattico - Feb 26, 2014

Cenerentola e senza ombra di dubbio la fiaba per eccellenza, l'arrampicata sociale piu famosa al mondo che affonda le sue radici nella tradizione popolare cinese. Messa per iscritto prima da Giambattista Basile e poi da Perrault e dai Fratelli Grimm, questa favola vanta gia diversi adattamenti 'musicali:' dalla celebre trasposizione Disney del 1950 alla versione made-for-TV di Rodgers & Hammerstein del 1957 (la stessa ha avuto ben due remake e due riduzioni teatrali, una delle quali e attualmente in scena)... passando per My Fair Lady (1956), la risposta di Lerner & Loewe al trend della 'Cinderella story.'
