Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Cinderella cast album release date
But before then, an official cast album will be released in the Spring, currently scheduled for release on 16 April, 2021
Lloyd Webber said: “50 years ago I couldn’t get Jesus Christ Superstar on stage as nobody wanted to produce it, so it appeared on record first. It’s so strange to find history repeating itself half a century later with the album of the complete score of my new Cinderella.
“I can’t get Cinderella on stage because I’m not allowed to, so I have gone back to my roots and recorded the album first.”
Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Cinderella features music from Webber with lyrics by David Zippel and an original story and book by Emerald Fennel.
Teased as a new, modern spin on the all time classic fairytale, Carrie Hope Fletcher was previously confirmed to play the title role with Victoria Hamilton-Barritt as the Stepmother.
Further casting is to be confirmed.
