Cinderella description

The show’s lyrics are from David Zippel, a multi-award winner for Broadway productions including City of Angels, The Goodbye Girl, The Woman in White and Liza at the Palace, as well as for work on film including Disney’s Hercules and Mulan, both of which received Oscar nominations.

Cinderella will be directed by Laurence Connor, with choreography from JoAnn Hunter, who previously partnered on School of Rock and the recent, sold out production of Joseph & the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat at The London Palladium.

Andrew Lloyd Webber said: “I have long wanted to write my own version of Cinderella but could never find a take on the classic story that really grabbed me. Emerald Fennell has written something truly exciting and original, and the moment I read her outline I knew I’d found my latest collaborator. I’m very pleased to be working with David Zippel, a hugely witty lyricist, once again.

I’m also excited to be reunited with Laurence and JoAnn, who I loved creating School of Rock with and who delivered a knock out Joseph last Summer at The London Palladium, where it rightfully returns in June.”

Excellent Show For 12 and Above

No good or bad fairy, mice or shiny carriage, but oh what an excellent performance from all the other main characters we all know so well from the traditional Xmas offerings of this well loved tale. The Queen and the ugly sisters stepmother were perfectly pitched against each other, as were the ugly sisters. Cinderella was a little dwarfed by these two pairs of characters.. but the show was colourful, flowed well, plenty of stage craft , and delightful music. Would suggest that this musical is best suited for 12 and above. And don’t bring them if they are expecting a traditional pantomime of boo and hisses, and a bag of sweets for the lucky view. But take everyone else. A lovely colourful show. We had a most enjoyable evening.

Clever new creation on an original fairy tale!

Cast acting excellent and the musical brought humour to a classic story line. A surprise in the second half of the performance made the show even more enjoyable for the audience and the whole show was truly amazing.

Has Coronavirus Delayed the Ball?

by Phil Willmott | Friday, March 6 2020, 11:58

Cinderella - Andrew Lloyd Webber News just in - Andrew Lloyd Webber has delayed the opening of his new musical, a radical adaptation of Cinderella.

The stated reason is “the current global circumstances ” but I think we can intemperate that as meaning concern that the on-going coronavirus health crisis could close down theatreland (a highly unlikely worst case scenario - it’s only flu) but it may prove to be a deterrent to cautious or ill informed people travelling into the West End.
