About this show

There have been many adaptations of the classic fairytale, "Cinderella"; however few possess the flair that Jackie Taylor and the talented cast of Black Ensemble Theater have to bring to the sixteenth triumphant return of The Other Cinderella. Originally performed in 1976, the show contains elements that reflect the era in which it was written. Over time, The Other Cinderella has developed and has continued to adapt to its new surroundings each time it graces the Black Ensemble Theater stage. The old fairy tale still contains characters like the lovable Fairy God Mama and the Brothers from the 'hood, but is now peppered with pop culture references and contemporary humor.
