FIRST LOOK: One of the hottest tickets in the Musical Theater scene right now is happening overseas and now is planning make its way here to our New York city backyard. We are talking about Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber‘s new contemporary musical adaptation of the classic tale of Cinderella. The show is currently playing to packed houses at London’s Gillian Lynne Theatre.
To get us into the spirit of this new take on the beloved fairy tale, here is B-Roll footage of the World Premiere London cast in action.
Under the direction of Laurence Connor and choreography by JoAnn M. Hunter, the cast was is led by…
Carrie Hope Fletcher as the title role,
Olivier nominee Victoria Hamilton-Barritt as “The Wicked Stepmother”,
Newcomer Ivano Turco as “Prince Sebastian”,
Rebecca Trehearn as “The Queen”,
Gloria Onitiri as “The Godmother”,
Laura Baldwin as stepsister “Adele”,
Georgina Castle as stepsister “Marie”,
and more.
Earlier today, Webber himself announced the show is expecting to make its Broadway next year. No word has been said if it will be part of this current 2021-2022 season or next year’s 2022-2023 season. Talks are also still being made for the show’s leading lady Carrie Hope Fletcher to possibly be part of the New York transfer. If it does happen, it will mark as Fletcher’s Broadway debut!!
How incredible is this?!
Who is excited?!!
