This edition: A New Take on Cinderella

Episode Details

Original tape date: March 1, 2013.

First aired: March 30, 2013.

We focus on the new Broadway musical, "Rodgers & Hammerstein's Cinderella." Joining us are two of its stars, Tony winner Victoria Clark, who plays the Fairy Godmother, and Ann Harada, who has the role of Cinderella's stepsister (whom she emphatically describes as not "mean," but "misguided" and "delusional"). Also on the panel are the show's lead producer Robyn Goodman and dramatist Douglas Carter Beane, who has created a new book for the production. Cinderella's libretto was originally written by Oscar Hammerstein II for a 1957 telecast, starring Julie Andrews. Beane has adapted and expanded it for Cinderella's 2013 Broadway premiere, adding new characters and plot lines in order to make the work more relevant and even more entrancing for 21st century audiences.
