Andrew Lloyd Webber, Emerald Fennell, and David Zippel’s musical will open at the Gillian Lynne Theatre later this year.
This particular production Cinderella is said to be a twist on the iconic fairytale. The musical stars Carrie Hope Fletcher as Cinderella, alongside Ivano Turco a recent Urdang Academy graduate who makes his West End debut as Prince Sebastian. Victoria Hamilton-Barritt is the Stepmother.
Gloria Onitiri (Caroline or Change; The Bodyguard) joins as the Godmother and Georgina Onuorah joins as part of the Ensemble / Alternate Cinderella. The full company also includes Michael Afemaré, Nicole Deon, Kate Ivory Jordan, and Matthieu Vinetot.
Cinderella is directed by Laurence Connor, with choreography by JoAnn M Hunter, co-musical supervision by John Rigby, design by Gabriela Tylesova, sound design by Gareth Owen, and lighting by Bruno Poet. The rest of the creative team is to be announced.
