Cinderella Now and Then

On January 24th, a new production of Rodgers' and Hammerstein's Cinderella went into previews at New York's Broadway Theater.

What better way to celebrate the event, then to present a bit of the musical's history:



And the first production of the musical itself:

  1. I love this musical! It's funny and the music is great! When I saw the remake with Leslie Ann Warren I was captivated. Of course, this is probably because I was a little girl hoping to become a princess. Would love to see it on Broadway!

    1. I love it, too, especially the version you mention, since that's the one I saw first. I hear that some interesting changes have been made to the new production, adding songs that were originally discarded, and developing characters. It would be such a kick to see it!

      Many thanks for stopping by and commenting!
      Best,
