The much-anticipated World Premiere of Andrew Lloyd Webber's Cinderella is now performing at the Gillian Lynne Theatre, a new romantic musical comedy featuring an original story and book by 2021 Oscar winner Emerald Fennell (Promising Young Women)and lyrics by Tony & Olivier award-winner David Zippell (City of Angels).
Welcome to Bellville! The most aggressively picturesque town in the history of the world, populated exclusively with gorgeous townsfolk who stop at nothing to achieve perfection. Bellville is a fairy tale come to life: a place where you can’t move without falling over a wishing well or a quivering milkmaid. Maintaining this façade is a full-time job and one that is taken very seriously indeed.
The only person steadfastly refusing to live in the fairy tale is Cinderella, loud-mouthed, dripping with disdain, and more likely to roast Hansel and Gretel for dinner than play the demure and downtrodden maid, Cinderella is desperate to escape. But underneath it all, the loneliness that comes with being the town pariah is wearing on her.
