A contemporary twist on the fairy taleAndrew Lloyd Webber and Oscar winner Emerald Fennel cast a spell over London with a new musical adaptation of Cinderella at the Gillian Lynne Theatre. This exciting, spectacular production is guaranteed to enchant audiences with its bold re-imaging of the popular fairy tale.
Although wicked stepmothers and talking mice might seem very old-fashioned, Cinderella is not what you may be expecting. This thoroughly modern take on the story takes place in Belleville, a land where everyone is gorgeous and obsessed with looks. Everyone except Cinderella, who doesn't hide her distain for the superficial society she lives in. When a Fairy Godmother appears to offer her a chance to fit in and find love, Cinderella's life is turned upside down, with lessons learned and hilarious mishaps along the way.
Cinderella tickets are sure to become some of the hottest in London, thanks to an incredible creative team. The musical was developed by British theatre icon, Andrew Lloyd Webber (Evita; Jesus Christ Superstar), with Killing Eve showrunner Emerald Fennell on board to write the book. Popular West End star Carrie Hope Fletcher steps into the lead character’s glass slippers as a thoroughly modern Cinderella. Her performance won the award for Best Performer in a Female Identifying Role in a Musical at the 2022 WhatsOnStage Awards.
