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 Rodgers +
Hammerstein's 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.
One of Rodgers + Hammerstein's most
popular titles, CINDERELLA was written for
television -- debuting in 1957 starring Julie
Andrews. In 2013, the show made its long-overdue
Broadway debut. Along with CINDERELLA, Richard
Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein's legendary musicals
include OKLAHOMA!, CAROUSEL, THE KING AND I, SOUTH
PACIFIC and THE SOUND OF MUSIC.
Beane's book for CINDERELLA blends masterfully with

"In My Own Little Corner," "Impossible/It's
Possible," "Ten Minutes Ago" and "Do I Love You
Because You're Beautiful?"
