Must see, Raunchy, Hilarious, Great singing, Clever

See it if Interested in a slightly raunchy and adult version of Cinderella. A fine score and a delightful book make this great fun.

Funny, Delightful, Fun, Great performances, Entertaining

See it if You want a fun night out. I had a great time. Not a carbon copy Cinderella story which was refreshing. Cast is great (esp. the women).

Don't see it if There are some plot holes and missed opportunities. With some changes this show could be really excellent. Read more

Funny, Great staging, Disappointing, Entertaining, Ambitious

See it if you love ALW, Cinderella, and/or new musicals with lots of humor. Ivano Turco gives a starmaking triple threat turn as Cinderella’s prince.

Don't see it if you need the heroine to give you a reason to root for her. Cinderella is so busy cosplaying as an anarchist she doesn’t show kindness at all

Great writing, Entertaining, Great staging, Fun, Fluffy

See it if You want something fun and unchallenging. A retelling of Cinderella, it has some funny moments and outlandish characters and plot twists.

Don't see it if You want something with a bit more depth. The characters are simply drawn and the music is nice but not groundbreaking. Read more

The London Evening Standard
August 19th, 2021

Cinderella has a terrific palette of songs, a snappy contemporary edge, and a star – Carrie Hope Fletcher – whose voice is both beautiful and powerful enough to knock down walls.

Time Out London
January 31st, 2022

But as a rule, none of this stuff feels very coherent...Nonetheless: it really is fun. Aside from Fennell’s witty lines and a clutch of great performances from Trehearn, Fletcher et al, it looks great.

The Stage (UK)
August 19th, 2021

It’s the cast that carries the show: Carrie Hope Fletcher takes the lead and stomps around the stage in DMs with a brilliant ease. She catches the timing of Fennell’s comic lines, and her voice is ideal: strident, loud and occasionally fragile.

The Arts Desk
August 19th, 2021

But the ambition in taking on one of the most loved fairytales of all, one we’re pretty much born knowing, and reconstructing it for the 21st century, is lost in a book that cannot resolve the contradictions inherent in its avowed iconoclasm. In that sense at least, the shoe doesn’t fit.

The Independent (UK)
August 19th, 2021

Sometimes it’s fun to go to the theatre and watch a high-camp, brightly coloured musical, but in this case the confused political slant muddles things. It’s a shame because, for sheer spectacle, you won’t get a more impressive show.

London Theatre
August 19th, 2021

And Carrie Hope Fletcher fits into this role as if it was made for her, which it seems to have been. Her grunge-punk princess is more Olivia Rodrigo than Disney, and Fletcher excels equally on emotional ballads and angry duets.

For a previous production

Nevertheless, it would be churlish to welcome this Cinderella with anything other than pleasure. It was worth waiting for.

For a previous production

It’s not Lloyd Webber’s most sophisticated work, but its generosity of spirit feels perfectly attuned to the moment. Just as we look to woo people back to theatres, here comes an utterly charming crowd-pleaser.
