Trivia

Cinderella arrives at the palace at 11:30pm. To accentuate the shortage of time before midnight strikes, the resulting ball sequence is told almost entirely through music. The "Gavotte" leads briskly into "Ten Minutes Ago," "Stepsisters' Lament," "Waltz for a Ball" and "Do I Love You Because You're Beautiful," with only occasional segments of dialogue between the numbers.

Hard to Believe They Did It Live
27 December 2004 | by Rick NYC-2See all my reviews

Boy, those were the days, weren't they? They did the musical live before millions of Americans. All that choreography, singing, staging, lighting, props getting set, happened live before the cameras, a TV musical with no net. Julie Andrews was granted a short leave of absence from My Fair Lady in order to do it. Lucky for us Lerner and Loewe were so generous to their American counterparts, Rodgers and Hammerstein. I was not quite four when this show appeared, but I was blown away enough to want to go into musical theater from that point on. Yes, those were the days...when TV was used for something more important than selling Viagra.
