Ah, Cinderella. No matter how many times I read the story, watch a movie or see a quoted graphic, it always makes me happy. The last Cinderella movie created by Disney affected me so much – and the line that stayed with me was “Have courage and be kind”. I think, that is the most wonderful sentence for all young girls and boys.
Rodgers and Hammerstein created a version of Cinderella with a twist in the classic fair maiden character. For children, seeing this version, which includes the story from the book by Douglas Carter Beane, will give them new curiosities of what a princess (and prince) can be. The music, the choreography and the costumes will wow children young and old.
Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella debuted in 1957 for television, and it was the only musical ever created by them for television. The broadcast was viewed by over 100 million people (if your kids ask, that’s like going viral today).
In 2013, The Rodgers and Hammerstein musical debuted on Broadway and subsequently received nine Tony nominations and won a Tony Award for costume design. Now in 2016, we are lucky enough to have it come to Montreal for a limited engagement!
If you are Broadway fan, you know some classic songs from Cinderella include “Impossible; It’s Possible” and “In My Own Little Corner”. The same creators of South Pacific and The Sound of Music are responsible for the celebratory music in Cinderella.
I cannot wait to take the boys to see this musical. I know they will love it.
