It’s official… Bad Cinderella is coming to Broadway next year!
Starring the wonderful Linedy Genao (Dear Evan Hansen, In The Heights) as Cinderella, this rip roaring production will take over Broadway in the spring of 2023.
About ‘Bad Cinderella’:
In addition to music by Lloyd Webber, Bad Cinderella features a book by Academy Award winner Emerald Fennell and lyrics by Tony and Olivier Award winner David Zippel (City of Angels). Laurence Connor directs with choreography by JoAnn M. Hunter.
This modern retelling of the classic fairytale is set in the exceptionally beautiful kingdom of Belleville. Our Cinderella is no longer the damsel in distress who needs saving. She finds herself and her prince in new circumstances which cause them to rethink what “happily ever after” really means.
Speaking on the show, Andrew said:
“I am thrilled and delighted that we are bringing Bad Cinderella to the Imperial Theatre. We have been working hard on a few new songs for our Broadway opening and, with such brilliant team, led by the spectacular Linedy, I know this is going to be really special.”Andrew Lloyd Webber
Leading lady Linedy commented:
“I have been dreaming about originating a leading role on Broadway for just about my entire life, but never in my wildest dreams did I ever imagine achieving that dream alongside Andrew Lloyd Webber and such an incredible team of collaborators. As a proud Dominican American, I am most excited about this opportunity to represent my community and show the world that fairytales do come true — and are for everybody. My heart is bursting.”Linedy Genao
The musical is produced on Broadway by No Guarantees (Christine Schwarzman, President; Darren Johnston, Executive Vice President) and Really Useful Group, with Wagner Johnson Productions serving as Executive Producers.
“We are honored to be introducing this modern Cinderella story to Broadway, and it is a dream come true to work with Andrew Lloyd Webber, especially on a score that sits among his very best.” She added, “Working with this extraordinary creative team, we’ve created a new Cinderella for today’s audience. It’s so joyful and unique; we can’t wait to share it!”Christine Schwarzman, No Guarantees
