"Ever Happily After," an original musical fairytale written by award-winning playwright Jill Jaysen with music by Emmy award-winning composer Randy Klein and lyrics by Matthew Hardy, will be featured in the upcoming New York Musical Theatre Festival (NYMF).

This whimsical musical, featuring Cinderella and her "happily ever after" fairytale friends, is infused with humorous references to life in the 21st century. The story shines a bright light on the fact that all that glitters is not necessarily gold and magic can be found in the most unexpected places. ?

As Cinderella is forced to endure the bullying ways of her step-sisters, she waits to be saved by her zany fairy godmother who is nowhere in sight. Unfortunately, her wand has run low on power and she can't seem to find her charger anywhere. With just enough power left to call her best bird friend Perez (inspired by Perez Hilton), the Fairy Godmother persuades Perez to take Cinderella under his wing and get her ready for the ball. Perez knows that if he makes this CinderCharming match, he'll be the hot tweet on the street and be "in" with the prestigious royal family. ??Will Cinderella make it to the ball? Will Prince Charming live up to his name? The truth is surprising and the match is enlightening. "Ever Happily After" will be presented on Sunday, July 21st at 1:00 and 5:00 p.m. at The Alice Griffen Jewel Box Theatre, 480 West 42nd Street between 9th and 10th Avenue. All tickets are $25.00 for reservations and information call (212) 352-3101 or visit
