When Rodgers and Hammerstein, perhaps the greatest composing team in history (The King and I, Oklahoma!), got together to adapt the enchanting tale of Cinderella, the results were magical. A new book by five-time Tony nominee Douglas Carter Beane (Sister Act, Xanadu) presents a delightfully romantic and hilarious take on the tale, featuring an incredible orchestra, jaw-dropping transformations and everything you love about the story -- the pumpkin, the glass slipper, the masked ball -- plus some surprising new twists. Rediscover Rodgers and Hammerstein's beloved songs, including "In My Own Little Corner," "Impossible/It's Possible" and "Ten Minutes Ago," in this outrageously fun, Tony-winning musical for dreamers of all ages. A smash on Broadway, Cinderella commences its national tour at the Providence Performing Arts Center. Learn More

Anna Deveare Smith is a tour de force! Assuming the roles of people she interviewed, she weaves a riveting performance that touches on both the resilience and vulnerability of the human body in the face of war, sickness, and tragedy and it our pursuit of grace.
