The Broadway show opened last night
It was not a bonner night for Belleville.
Andrew Lloyd Webber, David Zippel and Emerald Fennell’s musical Bad Cinderella has opened to critics on Broadway, and it’s fair to say the results were patchy at best.
First seen on this side of the Atlantic minus the “bad” adjective, the show was retooled and recast for its spell on the Great White Way, which kicked off earlier this year.
On the more solid side, The Guardian and The Stage each gave the piece three stars, with The Guardian saying “Cinderella doesn’t have that much to say in the end. But if bubblegum melodies, outfits that slay, and pectoral-forward fun is what you’re after, the shoe fits.”
