In this musical adaptation of the classic fairy tale by Michael Sgouros & Brenda Bell at the intimate Players Theatre, the beautiful but put-upon Cinderella must toil all day under the smirking demands of her awful stepsisters -- and then sleep among the cinders at night. Cinderella finds a way to make it to the Prince's ball, though, and even manages to capture his heart. Yes, she loses one of her shoes in the process, but what she gains is more precious than all the gold in the kingdom. Before the one-hour musical begins, you and your family can participate in interactive arts workshops where you'll learn about the original book and how it was brought to the stage. Kids can even make their own pumpkin carriage and magic wand to take home as a souvenir.

Overall it was a waste of time. Keep in mind this is as off-off Broadway as you can imagine. It is in the Players Theatre building, but not in the larger Players Theatre. Instead it is in the much smaller (50 seat) Steve & Marie Sgouros Theatre located on the 3rd floor of the building. Overall 4 amateur productions were presented, about 10-15 minutes each.
I saw Boo last year and it was much better. This year two of the 4 "acts" were terrible, no better than a poorly acted middle school play. The other two were just OK. Overall pretty poor. Don't think I will go to it next year of they have it again.
