Running since January 2013 Rodgers and Hammerstein's made-for-TV classic, newly adapted for the stage by Tony-nominee Douglas Carter Beane, is now on Broadway. Nominated for 9 Tony Awards including Best Revival of a Musical.
First broadcast in 1957, "Cinderella" was an annual TV event for several decades. It contains some of Rodgers and Hammerstein's most beloved songs, including "In My Own Little Corner," "Impossible," and "Ten Minutes Ago."
Douglas Carter Beane, who adapted "Sister Act" and "Xanadu" for the stage, was responsible for the Broadway makeover of "Cinderella." His romantic and hilarious take has all the classic elements you remember - the pumpkin, the glass slippers, the masked ball - plus some surprising new twists.
The show's sassy slogan - Glass Slippers Are So Back - reflects Douglas Carter Beane's signature style.
The director of "Cinderella," Mark Brokaw, is best known for his work on Off-Broadway dramas. Brokaw won the Drama Desk and Obie awards for Pulitzer-winner "How I Learned to Drive" in 1987.
