Rodgers and Hammerstein are synonymous with American musical theater. In the 1950s, they were given a unique opportunity to create the first musical specifically for the small screen. Cinderella was a smash when first televised in 1957, with a vast majority of the homes in America tuning in to see Julie Andrews perform the title role (re-done on TV in 1965). Tony-nominated playwright Douglas Carter Beane has updated the script, adding nuance and poignancy with a modern slant. The story’s structure ought to be familiar: Cinderella (with help from her fairy godmother) goes to the ball to meet the prince, despite poor treatment from her step-mother and her two step-sisters. Her fairy godmother magically provides a gown, a coach and, yes, glass slippers. The familiar story, sharp script updates, and rich music yield a magical concoction of musical theater for the whole family. Suitable for audience members age 6 and up
