CINDERELLA National Tour Recoups!

CINDERELLA National Tour Recoups!

Producers Robyn Goodman, Jill Furman and Stephen Kocis announce that the national tour of Rodgers + Hammerstein's Cinderella has recouped its entire $4.8 million investment in just six months after having launched on October 10, 2014 in Providence, RI.

The tour recouped on the occasion of the Tony Award-winning musical's 6-week engagement, which closed April 26 at the Ahmanson Theatre in Los Angeles. The beloved television star Fran Drescher - who played the role of Cinderella's wicked stepmother on Broadway last year - joined the company for its L.A. run.

About the tour's recoupment, the producers remark, "We are utterly delighted that audiences across the country are responding with such enthusiasm to CINDERELLA and its message. We couldn't be more proud of the beautiful production director Mark Brokaw and his collaborators have assembled for the road. It is gratifying to continue to be able to share CINDERELLA's magic with audiences of all ages everywhere."

Scheduled to play cities across the U.S. through May 2016, the next stops for CINDERELLA after Los Angeles are Las Vegas, San Diego and Sacramento, followed by cities in Texas, the Midwest, the South and East coast.

Rodgers & Hammerstein's Cinderella has music by Richard Rodgers, lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II, a new book by Douglas Carter Beane and original book by Oscar Hammerstein II. The musical is directed by Mark Brokaw and choreographed by Josh Rhodes. Music adaptation, supervision and arrangements are by David Chase and orchestrations are by Danny Troob.

CINDERELLA enjoyed a two-year run on Broadway from January 2013 to January 2015 at the Broadway Theatre in Manhattan.

With its fresh new take on the beloved tale of a young woman who is transformed from a chambermaid into a princess, this hilarious and romantic Rodgers & Hammerstein's Cinderella combines the story's classic elements - glass slippers, pumpkin and a beautiful ball along with some surprising twists. More than just a pretty face with the right shoe size, this Cinderella is a contemporary figure living in a fairytale setting. She is a spirited young woman with savvy and soul who doesn't let her rags or her gowns trip her up in her quest for kindness, compassion and forgiveness. She not only fights for her own dreams, but forces the prince to open his eyes to the world around him and realize his dreams too.

One of Rodgers & Hammerstein's most popular titles, Cinderella was written for television - debuting in 1957 starring Julie Andrews. In 2013, the show made its long-overdue Broadway debut. Along with Cinderella, Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein's legendary musicals include "Oklahoma!," "Carousel," "The King and I," "South Pacific" and "The Sound of Music."

The Cinderella tour is produced by Robyn Goodman, Jill Furman, Stephen Kocis, Edward Walson, Venetian Glass Productions, The Araca Group, Caiola Productions, Roy Furman, Peter May, Sanford Robertson, Eric Schmidt, James Spry and Blanket Fort Productions.
