cinderella2The revival of this lesser-performed Rodger’s and Hammerstein classic was very satisfying. I particularly enjoyed the score and the various effects and staging. The effects (such as the transformation of the stepmother from dusty to beautiful and Cinderella’s transformation to a white ball gown) were not gratuitous in anyway. The show wasn’t trying to be anything more than what it is – a pleasant afternoon at the theatre. Cinderella was nominated for Best Revival this season, but lost out to Pippin, another show I hope to see soon!
