Andrew Lloyd Webber has revealed hopes to take his new Cinderella musical to Broadway.
Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Cinderella debuted in the West End earlier this year after many delays due to the pandemic.
And now it’s up and running in London, Webber has plans to take the show across the Atlantic as soon as next year.
Speaking to the New York Post, he said: “I would think we’ll be open by late summer next year.”
Reflecting on the reopening of Broadway, he added: “We got open in London six weeks ago — finally finally — with our shows, and you know to be back here is of course extraordinary.
“It’s so difficult to put into words, really, because it’s so moving for everybody involved in theater to be back doing what they love. And that’s the bottom line of it all. We’re back doing what we’ve been put on the planet to do.”
Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Cinderella features music from Webber with lyrics by David Zippel and an original story and book by Emerald Fennel.
The retelling of the classic fairytale focuses on Cinderella – played by Carrie Hope Fletcher in the West End – and Prince Sebastian, the younger brother to Prince Charming
The West End production is currently playing at the Gillian Lynne Theatre , booking through until February 2022.
Meanwhile, an original studio cast album is available to stream, download, on CD and Vinyl.
