Additional casting to be announced.
Mr. Beane's book for RODGERS + HAMMERSTEIN's CINDERELLA offers a new romantic twist on the ultimate makeover story of a maid-turned-princess, mixing fresh comedy and wit with the beloved tale's classic elements -- the pumpkin, glass slipper, masked ball and more. In addition to musical numbers from the original score -- including "In My Own Little Corner," "Impossible/It's Possible," "Ten Minutes Ago" and "Do I Love You Because You're Beautiful?" -- this CINDERELLA will include four additional songs from the Rodgers + Hammerstein "trunk."
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.
