Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Bad Cinderella had its last preview performance on Broadway on Wednesday night, which also happened to be Webber’s 75th birthday.

While he had previously announced that he would be unable to attend the opening night of the new Broadway show due to his son’s ongoing battle with gastric cancer and hospitalization, the cast honored the legendary composer’s birthday by bringing out an enormous cake and singing happy birthday with the show’s audience.

In addition to Webber’s music, Bad Cinderella and its retelling of the classic fairytale features a book by Oscar-winning screenwriter Emerald Fennel and lyrics by Tony-winner David Zippel.
