RODGERS + HAMMERSTEIN'S CINDERELLA, one of their most popular titles, was written for television, debuting in 1957 starring Julie Andrews.  The musical has never been performed on Broadway, although stage adaptations have been performed worldwide since 1958.    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.
