A true fairy tale come to life; the only problem is Cinderella: loud-mouthed and dripping with disdain she refuses to conform to the Bellville way.

When her only friend, Prince Sebastian, is thrust into the royal spotlight, her feelings for him suddenly change. Alas, The Queen has decided to marry him off and with a royal wedding on the horizon, all looks lost for Cinderella. That is until she meets The Godmother who can fix anything!

The main Cinderella cast features Ivano Turco as Prince Sebastian, Victoria Hamilton-Barritt as The Stepmother, Georgina Castle and Laura Baldwin as Cinderella’s stepsisters Marie and Adele, Gloria Onitiri as The Godmother and Rebecca Trehearn as The Queen.

Cinderella - Gillian Lynne Theatre ">
Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Cinderella to close in London on 12 June at the Gillian Lynne Theatre; Broadway run planned in March 2023
Andrew Lloyd-Webber's blockbuster reimagining of Cinderella has posted closing notices for its Gillian Lynne Theatre run in London. The show will shutter on 12 June 2022 in London. The sad news was posted on the show's official website and social channels today, 1 May. The show had been booking to 2023. The show is currently planning a Broadway run, with casting notices posted and auditions having taken place in New York in January 2022. Lloyd Webber formerly announced today that the show would open on Broadway in March 2023, produced by No Guarantees, who also produce current Broadway productions Macbeth starring Daniel Craig and Ruth Negga, Funny Girl starring Beanie Feldstein and Ramin Karimloo, Company and Beetlejuice. Previews will run from February 2023. The show will be completely revamped again for the Broadway production. Following the show's opening in London, Cinderella had already been adjusted and retooled in November 2022, re-opening later that month. However, the Broadway revamp is believed to be much more extensive. Andrew Lloyd Webber said in a press statement that, "I am incredibly proud of Cinderella. Not only did it get some of the best reviews of my career, but we led the charge to reopen the West End, ensuring that theatre and live entertainment remained relevant and in the news. While mounting a new show in the midst of Covid has been an unbelievable challenge, we held the government’s feet to the flames throughout their changes of heart during the pandemic. Now, I am really excited to get to work putting together a new production with No Guarantees for Broadway. Thank you very much to everyone involved, particularly our UK audiences who have loved and supported the show. See you next March on Broadway.” Cinderella features a talented cast including Carrie Hope Fletcher as Cinderella, Victoria Hamilton-Barritt as The Stepmother, Rebecca Trehearn as The Queen, Georgina Castle and Laura Baldwin as Cinderella’s stepsisters Marie and Adele, Ivano Turco as Prince Sebastian, and Gloria Onitiri as The Godmother. Victoria Hamilton-Barritt was nominated for a 2022 Olivier Award for Best Actress In A Supporting Role In A Musical, but the musical failed to get any other nominations at this year's awards. The show did scoop 7 Whats On Stage Awards 2022 nominations, with Hope Fletcher winning for best performance in a female identifying role in a musical. A new cast for Cinderella, scheduled to begin performances in mid July, had already been hired, including Strictly Come Dancing star John Whaite as Prince Charming, and Chrissie Bhima as Cinderella, both making their West End debuts. Other cast recruited and now dropped from the show include Summer Strallen. There has been considerable controversy about the way that the cast and crew of both the current and forthcoming companies were told about the closure, with a number of actors and affiliated theatre people angry at the timing and execution of the producer's announcements. Producers of the show, Really Useful Group, had written to the cast and crew today, saying: Dear Cinderella Family, It is with regret that we’re writing to let you know that the Really Useful Group’s production of Cinderella will perform its final show at the Gillian Lynne theatre on Sunday June 12th.As Andrew himself has commented today, Cinderella ‘led the charge to reopen the west end, ensuring that theatre and live entertainment remained relevant and in the news.While mounting a new show in the midst of COVID has been an unbelievable challenge ,we held the Government’s feet to the flames throughout their changes of heart during the pandemic …’Some of you will already know, we’ve just informed the creative/production teams,cast,crew snd band and a statement will be released to the press and on social media shortly.Andrew and the teams at RUG and Green Light Stage would like to express our huge gratitude to everyone involved in the production and a deep sadness about coming off much earlier than we deserve .RUG and GLS are available tomorrow and beyond to discuss further details as necessary.Thank you for your immeasurable contribution to the show .We should all be very proud of Cinderella and all that we have achieved together ,and we look forward to our paths crossing again before too long.Sincerely, Everyone at the Really Useful Group Written by 2021 Oscar winner Emerald Fennell (Promising Young Woman), who is also a script writer and executive producer on Killing Eve, Cinderella is a modern take on the classic tale, with critics varying in their response to the themes tackled in the show. Cinderella has an original score by Lloyd Webber and has lyrics by David Zippel, the 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. The production reunited Andrew Lloyd Webber with director Laurence Connor and choreographer JoAnn M Hunter, who previously worked on the Olivier Award winning international hit School of Rock and recent production of Joseph & the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat at The London Palladium. The creative team also includes design by Gabriela Tylesova (Sweeney Todd, Love Never Dies),  sound design by Gareth Owen (& Juliet, Come From Away), lighting design by Bruno Poet (Tina: The Musical, Billie Eilish at Steve Jobs Theatre) and Co-Musical supervision by John Rigby (The King and I, The Phantom of the Opera).

After nearly 10 years at RUG, this feels like an exciting time to be joined by Charlie as, with our brilliant wider team, we take RUG to the next stage of its growth, broadening our ability to share Andrew’s work with millions of people across the world.” Current shows produced by The Really Useful Group include Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Cinderella at the Gillian Lynne Theatre, productions of The Phantom of the Opera in partnership with Cameron Mackintosh in London and on Broadway, and touring productions of Phantom, Joseph, Jesus Christ Superstar, School of Rock – The Musical, Starlight Express, Evita and more, Book tickets to Cinderella at the Gillian Lynne Theatre; book tickets to The Phantom of the Opera at Her Majesty's Theatre
John Whaite">
Is John Whaite heading for the West End this summer in an Andrew Lloyd Webber show?
Rumours are swirling theatreland that Strictly Come Dancing finalist and Bake Off! winner John Whaite is going to take the lead in a big West End show this summer in London. Apparently Whaite has a singing voice to die for, and combined with his killer dance moves, he's come to the attention of musical maestro Andrew Lloyd Webber. Lloyd Webber is rumoured to have tapped the star for one of his shows opening in July 2022 - and our guess is it could be a London revival of Lloyd Webber's 1982 spectacular Song and Dance. The show is in two acts, with the "Song" act comprising of the short musical Tell Me on a Sunday, with music by ALW and lyrics by Don Black. Originally this was cast for a young British woman, and is about her romantic misadventures in New York City and Hollywood, but could easily be updated. The "Dance" act is a ballet choreographed to Variations, composed by Lloyd Webber for his cellist brother Julian, and is based on the A Minor Caprice No. 24 by Paganini. Cameron Mackintosh originally suggested the format for Song and Dance, and the show opened at the Palace Theatre in 1982 starring Marti Webb in the Song act, and Wayne Sleep and Jane Darling in the Dance act. A source told The Sun newspaper that: "John will take centre stage in the show. It's a dream job for him. He really impressed on Strictly and when Andrew found out John has an ­excellent singing voice too, he reached out." John Whaite and his professional Strictly dance partner Johannes Radebe are currently performing part in the Strictly Come Dancing tour. Also on the tour are Strictly winners Rose Ayling-Ellis and her professional partner Giovanni Pernice, plus Max George and professional dancer Katya Jones, Sara Davies and Aljaz Skorjanec, Tilly Ramsay and Nikita Kuzmin and Rhys Stephenson and Nancy Xu. Strictly's professional dancers Amy Dowden, Neil Jones, Luba Mushtuk and Jowita Przystal also perform and Janette Manrara is hosting the tour. Andrew Lloyd Webber is busy at the moment, including the ongoing run of his acclaimed musical The Phantom of the Opera at Her Majesty's Theatre, and his new musical Cinderella reopening at the Gillian Lynne Theatre tomorrow, 3 February, after a short break.

‘Cinderella’ premiere postponed to Spring 2021
Andrew Lloyd Webber's new stage production of Cinderella starring Carrie Hope-Fletcher will now premiere in March 2021, it has been announced. Lloyd Webber's world premiere production was originally slated to begin performances at the Gillian Lynne Theatre in August 2020, however this was delayed to October 2020 in March by the unfolding coronavirus pandemic. Cinderella will now begin previews on 19 March 2021 with an official opening night on 7 April 2021. Ticket holders will be contacted by their point of sale to re-arrange their plans. Andrew Lloyd Webber said “Whilst I continue to impress on the government that theatres can reopen safely based on The London Palladium model, it has become clear that we need to move the opening of Cinderella to next Spring. My teams have been working throughout lockdown to prepare the show and are raring to go, but there are key elements, not least casting and the building of sets and costumes, that take months of forward planning and can only start as we get further down the road to normal. So the show will absolutely go on, just a little later than I’d hoped.” It was also announced that the Gillian Lynne Theatre would undergo refurbishment works to install additional toilet facilities, upgrade the auditorium and Front of House areas and installing audience safety measure which are currently being trialled at the London Palladium. Cinderella is written by Emerald Fennell with a new score by Andrew Lloyd Webber.

(Prince Edward Theatre), Fame (Aldwych Theatre) and Desperately Seeking Susan (Novello Theatre). Like Carrie Hope-Fletcher, Victoria had been involved in numerous workshop performances of the new musical. As reported elsewhere Victoria said ‘The music is absolutely fantastic, it’s outstanding. It’s very ‘Andrew’. It will be a fantastic show with the direction it will go on. I got so much out of creating the stepmother, it was a lot of fun.’ The production had been scheduled to begin previews in August, but with the unfolding theatre shutdown will now begin previews on 9 October 2020. Lloyd Webber has remained tight lipped about the plot, only to say that it is a complete reinvention of the classic fairy tale story.
