Did You Know?


First multi-racial cast performing Rodgers and Hammerstein's Cinderella. See more »


When Cinderella and her fairy godmother are in the pumpkin going to the ball at the end of "Impossible/It's Possible," watch Whitney Houston's mouth. There's one point where she's singing and her jaw is moving as if there is vibrato in the note, but if you listen to the note, it's a straight tone. See more »


Queen Constantina: Chris you've been up all night. Come have something to eat.
The Prince: I can't. I can't eat or rest until I've found her again.

They are spoken from the mind of a dancer and a person who just likes musicals.
20 March 1999 | by (Mathews, Virginia) – See all my reviews

I love this movie soooo much. I have seen it over 100 times. I have the video and I taped all the songs off of the movie and listen to it on a daily basis. I have memorized all the songs and words. The acting is great. I love all the people and how well they act together. Also I think the prince is just so cute!! I am a big fan of Brandy and Whitney Houston and I love all the dancing and music in the musical. My favorite scene is in the village at the beginning. I love this musical and if you haven't seen it you don't know what you are missing !!!!
