About the show

Andrew Lloyd Webber’s anticipated re-imagining of Cinderella hits the West End in 2020. Written by Killing Eve showrunner Emerald Fennell, this must-see adaptation of the beloved fairy tale plays now at the Gillian Lynne Theatre.

Based on the familiar children’s story, Cinderella is the tale of a young girl who is mistreated by her step-family and consigned to a life of servitude. When a magical Fairy Godmother appears to grant her one true wish, Cinderella heads to the prince’s ball to seek an escape – and maybe even find true love.

Carrie Hope Fletcher stars as Cinderella. Her previous work includes Heathers and Les Misérables in the West End, and The Addams Family on UK tour. She is joined by Victoria Hamilton-Barritt (In the Heights) as Stepmother.

Andrew Lloyd Webber writes the music for Cinderella, adding another score to his impressive collection including The Phantom of the Opera and Jesus Christ Superstar.

The show is directed by Laurence Connor (Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat), with a book by Emerald Fennell (Call the Midwife; Killing Eve), lyrics by David Zippel (City of Angels) and choreography by JoAnn Hunter.

This raucous show is a must-see, modern take on the classic story of princes, magic and glass slippers. Don't miss Cinderella at the Gillian Lynne Theatre.
