I agree with Donna K. My daughter (28 yrs old) and I saw the show in September. We enjoyed the music from the original Rogers and Hammerstein's "Cinderella", which I remembered from my youth and shared with my daughter. There were hints of political overtones in the beginning which led to a full on political agenda in the second act. The manipulation of the story line was an insult to the show from long ago and the dreams of young girls everywhere. How could Cinderella leave the ball with her glass slipper in hand?? That changed the entire meaning of the show.
I was enormously disappointed with the production!! The upside is I got to spend the time with my daughter and for that I'm grateful.
