Frequently Asked Questions
Q: When did Cinderella open on Broadway?
Cinderella started previews at The Broadway Theatre on January 25, 2013 and officially opened on March 3, 2013. After an almost 2-year run featuring stars such as Carly Rea Jepson, Fran Drescher, Keke Palmer and Sheri Shepherd, the Broadway production closed on January 3, 2015. This tour is based on the 2013 Broadway production.
Q: What is Cinderella about?
Cinderella is the Tony Award®- winning Broadway musical from the creators of The Sound of Music and South Pacific that’s delighting audiences with its contemporary take on the classic tale. This lush production features an incredible orchestra, jaw-dropping transformations and all the moments you love—the pumpkin, the glass slipper, the masked ball and more—plus some surprising new twists!

Q: Which version of Cinderella is this based on?
The story of Cinderella actually dates back to the seventeenth century, but our show is based on the 1957 Rodgers + Hammerstein televised musical that starred Julie Andrews. It’s the Cinderella story we all grew up with and loved.
This is the only Rodgers + Hammerstein musical that was written specifically for television. It seems like every generation has had their own version—in 1957 Julie Andrews starred in the premiere airing in a broadcast seen by more than 100 million viewers! Then in 1965, the Leslie Anne Warren played the role on television, and in 1997, Brandy appeared in the title role with Whitney Houston as the Fairy Godmother.
This particular stage production, however, is unique. While the story is the same, there is a new book harkening back to the classic French fairy tale and it incorporates modern touches. It also includes songs written by Rodgers & Hammerstein that have never before been used in any production.
Q: What is the age recommendation?
This a story truly enjoyed by audiences of all ages, adults and kids alike. With its iconic story and classic Broadway score, it’s the perfect show to introduce young people to the theater. Girls will be inspired by Ella’s character and spirit. Boys will identify with Prince Topher’s quest to discover who he is. For adults, there are contemporary themes and references that will surprise along with wit and sass that keep it smart. And there may not be a better date-night show than this timeless love story.
