Imperial Theatre | New York, New York
The critics have called it a Cinderella for the 21st Century, and now it is your turn to experience the brilliance that is Bad Cinderella, the play which will be coming to Imperial Theatre on Saturday 15th July 2023. This is an unconventional take on the classic, Cinderella becomes bad in a good way, of course. Enjoy the charming stage as the magical actors dressed in the most beautiful costume design take you through the tale of this epic account of Cinderella. With such critical awards this one will sell out very quickly, but you can purchase your tickets right now before it is too late.
Bad Cinderella is a modern retake of the classical fairy tale that takes place in the amazingly lovely country of Belleville. In this production, Cinderella is no longer the damsel in distress, she is the distress. She and her prince are put in fresh circumstances that force them to reevaluate what "happily ever after" actually means.
Andrew Lloyd Webber has hit a hole in one with this one, and the people loves him for it. As a matter of fact, here is what some of the critics have to say about it:
“A magical musical—one of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s best. A rom-com with a progressive message, brilliantly witty lyrics and exuberant numbers. What a ball!” – The Telegraph
“A hilarious triumph! Andrew Lloyd Webber and Emerald Fennell’s sassy musical take on the rags-to-riches fairy tale has a terrific palette of songs and a snappy contemporary edge.” – Evening Standard
“A big, colorful, fun fairy-tale rewrite. The audience has a ball!” – The New York Times
