Andrew Lloyd Weber has long been known as the king of Broadway with his mega-hits Evita, Cats and Jesus Christ Superstar – just to name a few. Now, he’s back with a reinterpretation of a fairy tale classic in Bad Cinderella, an unexpectedly raucous and sexy second act for Llyod Webber.

In this version, anti-heroes Cinderalla (Linedy Genao) has a secret friendship with Prince Sebastian (Jordon Dobson). Sebastian becomes the heir apparent after his brother Prince Charming goes missing. Cinderella decides to let her feelings be known at the inevitable ball, but of course, things don’t play out quite as expected. Though Bad Cinderella has moments of subversive fun, it too often reverts back to cliche instead of going for something braver.

Now playing at the Imperial Theatre on Broadway. Get tickets here!
