A perennial favorite of NYTB audiences across America, Cinderella returns to Florence Gould Hall this February. A dancing clock, two wacky stepsisters, and everyone’s favorite rags to riches princess are all part of this enchanting story with choreography by Donald Mahler; set design by Gillian Bradshaw-Smith; and costumes by Resident Costume Designer of the Metropolitan Opera, Sylvia Taalson Nolan.
"Gillian Bradshaw-Smith's ingenious scenery included a clock that came alive and danced, and furniture that moved magically about. And Sylvia Taalsohn Nolan, the imaginative costume designer, created a gasp-producing moment when Cinderella's attire changed miraculously from rags to the riches of a ball gown." -The New York Times
