Storyline

Rodgers & Hammerstein's musical retelling of the classic fairy tale. Cinderella is a teenage girl forced to do all of the menial tasks in the home she shares with her coldhearted stepmother and homely stepsisters. One day when home alone, Cinderella shares a cup of water with a thirsty and handsome traveler, not realizing until he continues on his journey that he is the crown prince of the kingdom. Shortly thereafter, the king and queen invite every young maiden in the kingdom to a royal ball so that the crown prince can find a girl to marry. Cinderella's stepmother and stepsisters go to the ball, leaving Cinderella behind to wish about how her life could be. While she is daydreaming, she is visited by her fairy godmother, who makes it possible for her wishes to come true. Written by Stephen Hughes

'Magical' is a word sometimes over-used...but not so here
10 January 2002 | by (las vegas, nv) – See all my reviews

Absolutely enchanting live-television broadcast of the Rodgers & Hammerstein musical play, with Lesley Ann Warren letter-perfect as the girl who sleeps among the ashes, taunted by her step-family until the night her fairy godmother comes to help her. Having seen this on network television as a rerun sometime in 1969/1970, I couldn't wait to see this again but feared it would be outdated and corny. It certainly isn't. Although not extravagant or technically-smooth, "Cinderella" connects with the viewer on a purely emotional basis, and that's its key charm. Stuart Damon is a gentle prince, Walter Pigeon and Ginger Rogers (!) are fine as the King and Queen, Celeste Holm is sweet as the good fairy. The songs are incredibly lilting and...well, NICE. What a treat for young and old alike!
