From the folks behind 'The Commedia Rapunzel' comes this fairy-tale spoof. Follow a troupe of poor traveling "Italian" actors as they mount a musical inspired by the well-known story, with daffy llamas, roller-skating fairy godmothers, selfie-taking stepsisters, Carol Channing, and furry kicks standing in for the traditional glass slippers.

BroadwayWorld

for a previous production "'The Commedia Cinderella' is filled with whimsy and laughs...With freedom to experiment and no semblance of a fourth wall in place, the audience is also part of the show...With all the colorful zaniness happening on stage, it is easy for members of the audience to become fully absorbed in the hilarity of the performance. And, through the power of laughter the impactful social messages of the piece are easy to digest." Full Review

On Stage Blog

for a previous production "As strong as the cast are individually, as a unit, they are herculean...Part of what makes this show so endearing is how they interact with the audience...Incredibly witty verbal gags, savvy as all heck flow like jealousy at a bridal shower...I can’t think of a single negative thing to say about this show, even for the sake of balance. A stellar cast, a script to die for, and a reckless silliness powered by good taste and native wit." Full Review

Says Me Says Mom

for a previous production “Definitely not just for children. It may possibly be the funniest version of ‘Cinderella’ ever presented on stage...If you like your heroines with a little more spunk, and you want to see a Cinderella who is not just meekly sitting around wishing for her prince to come, but is active, feisty and has a mind of her own, then you will love this show…A really fun show, and a greatly entertaining way to spend an hour or two.” Full Review

Mommy Poppins

for a previous production "A raucous and rambunctious adaption of the timeless fairy tale...'Commedia Cinderella' kept us in giggles, even if some of the jokes flew right over my kids' heads...The pace of the play is also a bit fast and at times, frenetic, which may not sit well with all children, while others will love the energy of it...It's definitely worth seeing for the adventurous family looking for something fresh."

See it if you enjoy slapstick and improv. Not really a children's show but they seemed to enjoy it. Funny take on Cinderella.

Don't see it if you don't like shows with lots of kids in the audience, audience participation, lots of slapstick and amusing repartee.

Dizzying, Raunchy, Cliched, Hilarious, Entertaining

See it if you can allow gut-wrenching laughter from silly improv to take you places you've never been before in live theater. These sick bitches SLAY.

Don't see it if risque humor on any level (EVERY level here) & improv turns you off. Sam LaFrage is a comedic force, along w/his deliciously raucous troop.

For a previous production
Original, Clever, Dizzying, Quirky, Entertaining

See it if You enjoy a slightly over the top show with fourth wall breaks, adult humor, and a story with starts and stops for pure comedic reasons

Don't see it if You can't just sit back and have fun with a little bit of absurdity. Maybe too much adult humor? You'd have to ask a parent about that one.

Funny, Clever, Delightful, Great writing, Entertaining

See it if You want an absolutely lovely, unexpectedly clever and entertaining show. Absolutely not just for kids-I know we adults got more out of it!

For a previous production
Hilarious, Fun, Participatory, Madcap, Zany

See it if you want to laugh out loud non-stop -- the players are clearly having a ball, and their joy & enthusiasm is as contagious as the zika virus!
