Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Cinderella is the exciting new musical comedy starring Carrie Hope Fletcher (Heathers The Musical, Les Misérables), set to completely reinvent the world’s best-loved fairytale when it opens at the Gillian Lynne Theatre in 2021.
Andrew Lloyd Webber has described this new iteration of Cinderella as a ‘misfit’.
“It’s about beauty, but it’s about beauty being what you are rather than what you try and make yourself’”
Featuring a brand new score by the legendary Andrew Lloyd Webber, lyrics by Oscar-nominated David Zippel, with a script from Killing Eve’s Emerald Fennell, this new production of an ancient tale promises to tell the rags-to-riches story the world loves in a totally new way.
Get ready for Cinderella… like you’ve never seen her before.
