*Disclosure: I have an ongoing relationship with Broadway in Detroit. The opinions expressed here, however, are my own.

I was able to see Cinderella two years ago when it was performed at the Detroit Opera House, and it's going to be in town again this year, from March 13-18 at the Fisher Theatre. I'm looking forward to seeing it again!

About the show:
RODGERS + HAMMERSTEIN'S CINDERELLA, the 2013 Tony® Award-winning Broadway musical from the creators of The King & I and The Sound of Music, will return to the Fisher Theatre for a limited engagement from March 13-18, 2018.

With its fresh new take on the beloved tale of a young woman who is transformed from a chambermaid into a princess, this hilarious and romantic Rodgers + Hammerstein's CINDERELLA combines the story's classic elements – glass slippers, pumpkin, and a beautiful ball along with some surprising twists. More than just a pretty face with the right shoe size, this Cinderella is a contemporary figure living in a fairytale setting. She is a spirited young woman with savvy and soul who doesn't let her rags or her gowns trip her up in her quest for kindness, compassion and forgiveness. She longs to escape the drudgery of her work at home and instead work to make the world a better place. She not only fights for her own dreams, but forces the prince to open his eyes to the world around him and realize his dreams too.
