BWW TV: It's Possible! Lesley Ann Warren Returns to Her CINDERELLA Roots Onstage at the Broadway Theatre

Where have the 50 years gone? Academy Award® nominee Lesley Ann Warren - who was all of 18 years old when CBS-TV selected her as its CINDERELLA for the famed 1965 telecast of Rodgers + Hammerstein's CINDERELLA - joined the cast of the current Broadway company on stage to perform a number from the musical at the conclusion of the September 23rd performance. Miss Warren's CINDERELLA was such a success for CBS that the musical aired once each year for 8 years until 1974. Miss Warren's appearance coincides with the 50th anniversary release of the telecast.

Below, BroadwayWorld brings you a behind the scenes interview with Warren, as well as highlights from her special performance of "It's Possible."
