I love the rodgers & hammerstein score for this, Great costumes, rags to a ballgown!, Old-fashioned, dated story but fun to hear the music

See it if I saw this back in April 2014 (before Show-score began). I loved the Julie Andrews original version and it was fun to see it fully staged.

Don't see it if you want something edgy, don't like musicals. Read more

Cliched, Indulgent, Great staging, Hammy, Exaggerated

See it if Disney "magic" is enough for you. Staging IS magical, along w/costume-changing tricks. But K Palmer's not strong enough to carry a big show.

Don't see it if over-rated over-the-top reality-tv caricatures playing themselves will ruin Disney for you. Nene Leakes playing Nene Leakes is not worth it.

Clever, Delightful, Enchanting, Feminist, Reinvigorated

See it if you like R&H, enjoy thoughtfully updated twists on classic stories, you want a show for the family (great for ALL), you're seeking beauty.

Don't see it if you want something edgy, you don't like classic Broadway music, you feel the original Cinderella story was perfect in its messaging to girls

Entertaining, Delightful, Enchanting, Dated, Great staging

Romantic, Great singing, Entertaining, Delightful, Enchanting

See it if you're a fan of the classic story. Laura Osnes was beautiful in this production. The costumes were gorgeous. Really can't go wrong with this

Don't see it if you don't like the movie, the songs or a classic story.

Fluffy, Funny, Delightful

See it if You enjoy fairy tales and the music of Rodgers & Hammerstein, are open to an updated book

Don't see it if You expect Disney show and don't have an open mind to any other option/interpretation of the story.

Dizzying, Great singing, Entertaining

See it if You like the songs and original story.

Don't see it if You are interested in seeing the movie on stage. It's nothing like the movie. Read more

Overrated, Slow, Entertaining, Disappointing, Delightful

See it if you love seeing childhood fairy tales brought to life.

Don't see it if you are tired of the same stories being told over and over again, without anything new to add.
