Cinderella by Rodgers and Hammerstein at Broadway Theatre
“Cinderella,” with Laura Osnes in the title role, is at the Broadway Theatre. All Tickets group sales agents have group discount tickets for the musical. “Cinderella” has a new book by Douglas Carter Beane and the same wonderful music and lyrics by Rodgers and Hammerstein. This is a historic production, as it’s the first time “Cinderella” will have a full Broadway production, and it takes place at the historic Broadway Theatre.
Cinderella Family Friendly
This new “Cinderella,” like the original by Rodgers & Hammerstein, offers great music and lyrics by two of America’s greatest writing teams. Classic songs include “In My Own Little Corner,” “A Lovely Night,” “Impossible,” “Ten Minutes Ago” and “Stepsister’s Lament.” It also includes all of the wonderful romance and charm of what is a classic fairy tale.
The new story offers all an appropriate and contemporary story at group discounts. We follow the story of Ella. She is smart and beautiful. But she’s also repressed. Ella is controlled by her wicked, self-absorbed stepmother, Madame, and by Madame’s two daughters, Charlotte and Gabrielle.
Ella has few friends. The animals in the woods love her, “crazy Marie” is her buddy and the revolutionary student Jean-Michel likes her. At the same time in different part of the kingdom, Prince Topher is in search of his true self. He’s unsure of how he fits in with his own kingdom. Like Ella, Topher is also being controlled; his nemesis is his secretly scheming advisor, Sebastian. Sebastian suggests throwing a ball so the Prince might meet potential brides. It’s at the ball, in classic fairytale fashion, Ella and Topher’s different worlds connect. What follows is totally unexpected.
A Welcome Production
This new version of “Cinderella” is a welcomed addition to the Broadway season. The Broadway Theatre, which was the venue in which Mickey Mouse made his debut in the short film “Steamboat Willy,” has hosted many important productions. These include Irving Berlin’s hit production, “This is the Army,” which opened on July 4, 1942, to benefit the Army Relief Fund and star-filled performances of the 1950s such as “Mr. Wonderful” (1956) starring Sammy Davis, Jr. and “Gypsy” (1959) with the inimitable Ethel Merman. Patti Lupone and Mandy Patinkin starred at the Broadway in Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice’s premiere of “Evita” (1979). “Cinderella” could certainly be in this class.
