It's Possible: An Oral History of 1997's "Cinderella"

 

Here is an absolutely fantastic (and long) piece about the creation of “the Brandy Cinderella” from Shondaland with tidbits from the living cast and crew — including actors Brandy Norwood, Paolo Montalban, Bernadette Peters, Whoopi Goldberg, Jason Alexander, and Victor Garber; along with executive producers Debra Martin Chase, Craig Zadan, and Neil Meron; director Robert Iscove, writer Robert L. Freedman, choreographer Rob Marshall, and costume designer Ellen Mirojnick.

Hey All!

Sorry to revive an old thread, but for anyone who’s interested I just did an interview with CINDERELLA’s music director Paul Bogaev and he talks about the process of adapting the score for the ‘97 movie--including a great story about Whitney Houston recording “There Is Music in You”! Paul’s also done tons of Broadway (AIDA, CHESS, SUNSET BOULEVARD), other TV movies (ANNIE) and film (CHICAGO, NINE, DREAMGIRLS) and has some wonderful insight on vocal performance and music adaptation, as well as some fun facts on his projects (like Laurie Beechman getting close to playing Florence in CHESS). Take a listen if you have the time! Fair warning: there’s some explicit language...Paul and I both have a fondness for cursing :)
