Features: Originally a 1950s television musical, Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Cinderella tells the classic story of the fairytale with a modern twist. The characters instant makeovers on the stage not only invite some well-deserved gasps from the audience, the modern lingo is hilarious and makes the evening memorable. Debuting on Broadway for the first time in 2013, Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Cinderella will finish its successful 2 year run on Broadway on 3rd January 2015. The history of Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Cinderella actors is rich and Keke Palmer, taking over from Julie Andrews (1957), Lesley Ann Warren (1965) and Brandy Norwood (1997), is the youngest ever to take on the role. This Broadway stint will also include Nene Leakes taking over the role of the wicked step mother from Sherri Shepherd for the finale of Cinderella in 2015.
