Obviously I'm not reviewing CINDERELLA at this early stage of its life; but how seriously exciting to see (& hear) such a confident, funny, fresh & sassy contemporary tale of such a classic tale, a million miles from a panto but with some thrilling new @OfficialALW showstoppers. pic.twitter.com/aa4cadjxvN- Mark Shenton (@ShentonStage) May 17, 2019
In Lloyd Webber's retelling the classic fairy tale gets a makeover that includes a feisty, fiery version of the titular princess who falls in love with an awkward oddball named Sebastian, and a gay love story involving Prince Charming and a duke.
The musical features lyrics by David Zippel and a book by actress and writer Emerald Fennel.
