I’m a long-time lover of musicals, growing up on the classics. I can recall the first time that I saw the made-for-TV version of Roger’s and Hammerstein’s Cinderella. I immediately fell in love with the music. I am so excited to have the chance to take my musical-loving daughter to see Rodgers + Hammerstein’s CINDERELLA at The National Theatre in Washington, DC on opening night! And even more exciting (for you, at least!) is that I get to send two of my readers to the theater, too! Note: tickets (for a reader and for me) have been received in exchange for posting about the show and hosting this giveaway. All thoughts are my own.
About Rodgers + Hammerstein’s CINDERELLA
The 2013 Tony® Award-winning Broadway musical, from the creators of OKLAHOMA!, Carousel, The King and I, South Pacific and The Sound of Music, will be playing for a limited engagement at the National Theater in DC from November 18-29, 2015.
With its fresh new take on the beloved tale of a young woman who is transformed from a chambermaid into a princess, this hilarious and romantic Rodgers + Hammerstein’s CINDERELLA combines the story’s classic elements – glass slippers, pumpkin, and a beautiful ball along with some surprising twists. More than just a pretty face with the right shoe size, this Cinderella is a contemporary figure living in a fairytale setting. She is a spirited young woman with savvy and soul who doesn’t let her rags or her gowns trip her up in her quest for kindness, compassion and forgiveness. She longs to escape the drudgery of her work at home and instead work to make the world a better place. She not only fights for her own dreams, but forces the prince to open his eyes to the world around him and realize his dreams too.
CINDERELLA has music by Richard Rodgers, lyrics by Oscar Hammerstein II, a new book by Douglas Carter Beane and original book by Oscar Hammerstein II. The musical is directed by Mark Brokaw and choreographed by Josh Rhodes. Music adaptation, supervision and arrangements are by David Chase and orchestrations are by Danny Troob.
Some of the wonderful songs from Cinderella include “In My Own Little Corner,” “Impossible/It’s Possible,” “Ten Minutes Ago” and “Do I Love You Because You’re Beautiful?” I’m getting chills just thinking about them!
Although Cinderella debuted on television in 1957, I was shocked to learn that Cinderella made its its long-overdue Broadway debut in 2013. Along with CINDERELLA, Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein’s legendary musicals include OKLAHOMA!, Carousel, The King and I, South Pacific and The Sound of Music.
