    What the popular press said...

    "Glittery patchwork of a show."
    Ben Brantley for NY Times

    "Overhauling a show can make it stronger and more fun. But these revisions just make 'Cinderella' longer. If anyone knows that value of not overstaying one’s welcome, it’s this clock-watching heroine"
    Joe Dziemianowicz for NY Daily News

    "The show’s book has been given the kind of face-lift that would make Joan Rivers jealous. ."
    Elisabeth Vincentelli for New York Post

    "Despite three sterling performances and the timeless songs, lovelier than ever in Danny Troob’s gorgeous orchestrations, the show never comes together in a satisfying way."
    Erik Haagensen for Back Stage

    "You wish the second act were faster and funnier — but, taken as a whole, 'Cinderella' works, providing a solid and congenial framework for Rodgers and Hammerstein's wonderful songs."
    Robert Feldberg for The Record

    "Has enough magic on tap to deliver crowd-pleasing family entertainment."
    David Rooney for The Hollywood Reporter

    "While her light soprano gives sweet voice to Ella, Osnes’ acting chops and dancing skills make her as lovely to watch as she is to listen to."
    Marilyn Stasio for Variety
