‘Bad Cinderella’ set for Broadway debut

Lloyd Webber hopes his fairy tale has a better ending on Broadway than it did in London, where it closed less than a year after opening and suffered heavy losses.

NEW YORK – Andrew Lloyd Webber will say goodbye to his last remaining show on Broadway and welcome another.

The music scene icon announced Monday that his retooled version of “Cinderella” will land in New York at the Imperial Theater in February with new songs, a new female lead and a new title.

“Bad Cinderella” – borrowing the title from a main song on the show instead of using the bland title “Cinderella” by the London West End – will star Linedy Genao in the title role. She has had several roles in “Dear Evan Hansen” and “On Your Feet!” Carrie Hope Fletcher played the title character in London.

Lloyd Webber hopes his fairy tale has a better ending on Broadway than it did in London, where “Cinderella” closed less than a year after it premiered and suffered heavy losses, especially in light of COVID -19 scramble for the right to run.

The composer in a press conference outside the theater noted that the performance will officially open – and reviews will be posted – on March 23, a day after his 75th birthday. “It will be a treat to see what kind of birthday present I get,” he said.

Genao then used a can of spray paint to spray the word “Bad” over the show’s original logo. “I have something to tell you,” she said. “I am not your Cinderella. You’re my ill-fated Cinderella.”

The stage musical features a brand new score from Lloyd Webber with a book by Emerald Fennell and lyrics by David Zippel. JoAnn M. Hunter choreographed with Laurence Connor direction.

Lloyd Webber will close his Broadway play “The Phantom of the Opera” in 2023. A Broadway fixture since 1988, the film will close on February 18, the day after it begins. First preview for “Bad Cinderella,” meaning a Lloyd Webber musical that would be performed on Broadway every night since September 1979.
