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 production which will be coming to Imperial Theatre on Sunday 4th June 2023. This is an unorthodox take on the classic, Cinderella becomes bad in a good way, of course. Enjoy the breathtaking stage as the fancy actors dressed in the most dazzling costume design take you through the narrative of this epic account of Cinderella. With such critical awards this one will sell out very quickly, but you can buy your tickets right now before it is too late.
Bad Cinderella is a modernized retake of the classic 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 require them to reevaluate what "happily ever after" actually means.
Andrew Lloyd Webber has hit a hole in one with this one, and the fans and critics 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
