Carrie Hope Fletcher: “I’m due to stay in the show until July 13th. That still feels like quite a long time away for me, so hopefully we won’t be affected by Covid again.”

I had never heard of Colleen Ballinger until I running into the pre-teens who showed up at the stage door for her when she was stunt-casted in Waitress. I'm open to being pleasantly surprised by her in Cinderella, though.

Colleen’s casting in “Waitress” wasn’t stunt casting. It was “casting”.

Thats simply untrue. She has a huge online following for younger folks.

It was very much publicized in the press as "Miranda Sings from YouTube on Broadway for 4 weeks only," which is kind of the definition of stunt casting.

Colleen was cast in Waitress the same time as Todrick Hall, and they had their own production shoot together. They were billed as YouTube stars and it was stunt casting to bring people back in during another slow period for the show. The performance video below is also fun.

Had ALW directly ripped off Disney’s Cinderella I’m sure there would be issues, but he doesn’t. As long as it’s inspired from Grimm Brothers Cinderella, there isn’t really an issue."

To be totally pedantic, it’s actually the Charles Perrault version of Cinderella that most modern adaptations adhere to. That’s the one with a Fairy Godmother and a glass slipper, rather than a dead mother in a tree and a gold slipper
"

Yay! Somebody else who knows about the Perrault version!

That press conference was cringe. I still have no idea who the actress is who is playing the title role and she stood there for 5 minutes.

They had to put all of that up overnight as the theater was still blank during the day yesterday. And they're really going with "Bad Cinderella" and a Mean Girls/Legally Blonde theming?


A Chorus Line revival played its final Broadway performance on August 17, 2008. The tour played its final performance on August 21, 2011. A new non-equity tour started in October 2012 played its final performance on March 23, 2013. Another non-equity tour launched on January 20, 2018. The tour ended its US run in Kansas City and then toured throughout Japan August & September 2018.

Linedy Genao is Cinderella. She's amazing and I know she'll be great in this one.

I hope this show does better. I only wish Carrie and Victoria would come from London. 


The idea is to work and to experiment. Some things will be creatively successful, some things will succeed at the box office, and some things will only - which is the biggest only - teach you things that see the future. And they're probably as valuable as any of your successes. -Harold Prince

The press release also mentions new songs so I wonder what else they're changing.

A spokesman for Bad Cinderella said that the show would be "redesigned" as well. 

I would guess that means no audience revolve...

Some of the melodies in this musical are absolutely beautiful. I like the melodies for "Bad Cinderella", "Only You, Lonely You", "I Know I Have a Heart", and "Marry for Love". But a lot ot the rest I don't really like. I feel like this tale needs some magic instead of plastic surgery! Like when Cinderella puts on the shoes she's "beautiful" and when she takes them off because they hurt so much by midnight she returns to normal. I dunno, it needs a new book, and I don't like the title change to Bad Cinderella simply because then it's not really Andrew Lloyd Webber's version of the fairy tale, now it's more of a new thing.

Also, does anyone have a link to exactly where Webber said he intended "Bad Cinderella" as a homage to "In My Own Little Corner"?
