Broadway sensation and the originator of the "Marie/Fairy Godmother" role in Rodgers + Hammerstein's CINDERELLA Victoria Clark visited the national tour of CINDERELLA in Toronto at the Ed Mirvish Theatre on Thursday, January 7, 2016. Scroll down for photos!

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 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 longs to escape the drudgery of her work at home and instead work to make the world a better place. 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.

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.

Kaitlyn Davidson dons the glass slippers in the title role of Cinderella, which she also understudied in the Broadway production. Davidson previously played the role of Gabrielle on tour. Andy Huntington Jones plays the role of Prince Topher, Cinderella's dashing love interest.

The Musical) as Jean-Michele, Kimberly Fauré (R+H's Cinderella, Bullets Over Broadway) as Gabrielle, Aymee Garcia (Shrek The Musical, Avenue Q) as Charlotte, Blake Hammond (Living on Love, First Date) as Sebastian andChauncey Packer (Porgy & Bess First National Tour) as Lord Pinkleton.
