Santino Fontana, Laura Osnes Set for Broadway-Bound Cinderella
As previously reported, Mark Brokaw will direct the production, which will feature a new book by Douglas Carter Beane. It aims to arrive on Broadway in the 2012-2013 season, although no theater has been announced.
In this re-invention of the classic tale, many original story elements remain intact -- including pumpkin, glass slippers, and Fairy Godmother - but in a new twist, it is now Cinderella's turn to rescue the Prince. The production will feature 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?" -- as well as several songs from the Rodgers & Hammerstein trunk.
