Rodgers and Hammerstein's Cinderella and More
March 1, 2013. Posted by Michael Bourne.
Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein created the musical Cinderella for television in 1957. Julie Andrews played the girl with the glass slipper back then. Laura Osnes wears (and loses) the glass slipper now in the first production of Cinderella on Broadway.
I talked with Ted Chapin, president of the Rodgers and Hammerstein Organization, about the new Cinderella, about last season's City Center Encores revival of the Rodgers and Hammerstein flop, Pipe Dream, and about Everything Was Possible, Chapin's memoir of his beginnings in the theatre, as a go-fer for the original production of Stephen Sondheim's Follies.
