What Is the Story of Cinderella? The smart and beautiful young Ella lives in the care of her wicked, self-absorbed stepmother Madame and Madame’s two daughters, Charlotte and Gabrielle. Ella’s only friends in the world are the animals in the woods, “crazy Marie” and the revolutionary student Jean-Michel. Meanwhile in another part of the kingdom, Prince Topher is trying to find himself and learn his place in the kingdom. When his scheming advisor Sebastian suggests throwing a ball so the Prince could meet potential brides, Ella and Topher’s different worlds come together. Expect the unexpected in this clever retelling of the beloved fairytale.
What Is Cinderella Like? Broadway’s first staging of Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Cinderella offers audiences the best of both worlds: The magic and romance of the classic fairytale is brought to life within a contemporary script featuring several new subplots (a young Prince trying to find himself, a revolution brewing in the kingdom, a stepsister’s romance, and more). The two-act musical features fantastic performances and plenty of laughs for both adults and children. Audiences can expect to see instantaneous costume changes, a flying fairy godmother and beloved favorite songs including “In My Own Little Corner,” “A Lovely Night,” “Impossible,” “Ten Minutes Ago” and “Stepsister’s Lament.”
Is Cinderella Good for Kids? Of course! Cinderella is perfect for kids: Colorful costumes, onstage magic and comic performances make this musical a great early Broadway outing for young theatergoers.
