Rodgers and Hamerstein’s Cinderella is the new Broadway adaptation of the classic musical. This contemporary take re-invents the classic tale of a maid-turned-princess with fresh comedy, wit, and satire. With pumpkin, glass slippers, Fairy Godmother and other classic elements intact, it is now Cinderella’s turn to rescue the Prince, reminding us once again that in a cruel world the act that matters most is kindness. Featuring In My Own Little Corner, Impossible/It's Possible, Ten Minutes Ago and Do I Love You Because You're Beautiful?
Cinderella will be directed by Kenneth Beck, a “Big Easy Award” winning performer, choreographer, and director who was recently honored by Nola.com | Times Picayune as the Best Choreographer of 2016 and Gambit Magazine with a "Big Easy Award" for his work on West Side Story for the Jefferson Performing Arts Society. Mr. Beck will be joined by musical director, Dr. Donna Cavijo, and technical director, D.J. Galiano.
Tickets will go on sale on Wednesday, July 5th.
