The UK premiere of the Broadway version of Rodgers + Hammerstein’s Cinderella, in concert comes to Cadogan Hall on Sunday 20th October at 6.30pm.
Rodgers + Hammerstein’s Cinderella is the Tony Award-winning musical from the creators of South Pacific and The Sound of Music that has delighted American audiences with its contemporary take on the classic fairy tale. The semi-staged concert, directed by Johnathan O’Boyle (The View Upstairs, Hair, Aspects of Love, Pippin), will feature some of Rodgers & Hammerstein’s most beloved songs, including “In My Own Little Corner,” “Impossible/It’s Possible” and “Ten Minutes Ago,” alongside a hilarious and romantic new book by Tony Award-nominee Douglas Carter Beane, as well as some new characters and surprising twists. Originally presented on television in 1957 starring Julie Andrews, Rodgers + Hammerstein’s Cinderella was twice remade, first in 1965 for Lesley Ann Warren and then again in 1997 featuring Brandy and Whitney Houston. The original Broadway production opened in 2013.
Musical direction will be by Freddie Tapner, along with a stunning 21-piece orchestra featuring London Musical Theatre Orchestra (LMTO). Casting will be announced shortly.
