Andrew Lloyd Webber’s major new musical
Andrew Lloyd Webber presents the world premiere of Cinderella – a spectacular new musical now playing at the Gillian Lynne Theatre in London’s West End.
Carrie Hope-Fletcher (Heathers, Les Misérables) stars as ‘Cinderella’ alongside Victoria Hamilton-Barritt as the ‘Step Mother’ in a new adaptation of the classic fairy tale for the 21st Century.
Cinderella is brought to the stage by a powerhouse creative team including an original score by Oscar, Emmy, Grammy & Tony award winner Andrew Lloyd Webber, a book by 2021 Oscar winner and Killing Eve script writer Emerald Fennell, and lyrics by Oscar nominee David Zippel (Disney’s Hercules, Mulan; City of Angels).
A complete reinvention of the classic fairy tale, Cinderella promises be the stand-out musical of the year.
Cinderella tickets are booking until 12 June 2022 at the Gillian Lynne Theatre, London.
What is Cinderella about?
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. 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!
