About the show
Cinderella is the well-loved tale of an orphan who finds true love against the odds. Bullied by her stepmother and stepsisters and forced to wait on them hand and foot, she longs to escape her isolated life. When a grand ball approaches and a Fairy Godmother appears, it looks like all of Cinderella’s dreams might come true.
This new version of Cinderella was developed by Andrew Lloyd Webber, and with Killing Eve showrunner Emerald Fennell on board to write the book, promises a compelling twist on the well-known story.
Casting for Cinderella in the West End is yet to be announced, but during workshops, musical theatre star Carrie Hope Fletcher (Les Misérables; Heathers) stepped into the lead character’s glass slippers.
The musical is directed by Laurence Connor (London Palladium’s Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat), with a book Emerald Fennell (Killing Eve; Promising Young Woman), lyrics by David Zippel (City of Angels), music by Andrew Lloyd Webber and choreography by JoAnn Hunter.
With an exciting and fresh creative team, Cinderella at the Gillian Lynne Theatre is sure to be a dazzling addition to the West End. Catch this hotly anticipated musical from September 2020.
