This marks the Broadway debut of Rodgers and Hammerstein's beloved musical, Cinderella. Originally written for television as a star vehicle for Julie Andrews in 1957, Cinderella was been revived for television twice: in 1965 Lesley Ann Warren starred in the title role and in 1997 R&B star Brandy played Cinderella opposite Whitney Houston (who was also the executive producer) as the Fairy Godmother.
With an updated book by Douglas Carter Beane, Cinderella is based on the timeless fairy tale of the same name. It tells the story of a shy young girl who wants to go to the ball to meet her prince, but is prevented from going by her wicked stepmother and ugly stepsisters. But, with a little magic from her fairy Godmother, the impossible happens and Cinderella transforms into the belle of the ball. The score features hummable classics like "In My Own Little Corner", "A Lovely Night", "Ten Minute Ago" and "Impossible."
Our larger than life production of the classic fairy tale is set to the music of Sergei Prokofiev and brings to the stage dancers, puppets, a fifteen foot-tall Fairy Godmother and a twenty-foot-long Magic Dragon! Dancers become winged horses and party guests become baby mice in this fabulous program.

This early satirical sendup helped Gilbert and Sullivan chart a new course for modern musical theatre. Lowly sailor Ralph Rackstraw has a problem. Or rather, two. He's fallen for the Captain's daughter, Josephine, and to make matters worse, she's been promised to the haughty Sir Joseph Porter. And although Josephine's heart beats only for Ralph, she agrees to be a dutiful daughter and accept her role as Sir Joseph's wife. Normally Sir Joseph would boast his appreciation of equality among men, but when Ralph and Josephine eventually try to elope, he flip flops his position. Speaking of flipping and flopping… Little Buttercup, the bumbling former "baby farmer" admits her mistake from many years before – that Ralph was really born to the Captain's parents, and vice versa. In the end, much rejoicing begins, as everyone finally finds true love. Even Little Buttercup!
