This delightful retelling of the classic story set in New Orleans during the Civil War had adults and children laughing at the American Stage Children's Theatre. Anne Marie Luise deVille, helps win a battle for the Confederacy and then disappears. The governor announces a ball to celebrate the victory. The fairy godmother, a Jamaican woman, flies in and does a sprightly calypso number.
"The best children's theatre can appeal as much to adults as to kids. That certainly is the case with Cinderella... Just about everything is right with this production... The music is some of [Lee Ahlin's] best work." - Weekly Planet Expression
