A fractured fairy tale leads to musical missteps in Broadway’s ‘Bad Cinderella’

Cats, The Phantom of the Opera, Evita, and more, returns to Broadway with Bad Cinderella in a reworked transfer from London’s West End.

Webber’s score combines with David Zippel’s lyrics, a book by Emerald Fennell, and adapted by Alexis Scheer for a modern take on the classic fairy tale.

While a revival of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s more familiar Cinderella appeared on Broadway in 2013, Bad Cinderella offers something quite different: in Belleville, where everyone is vanity obsessed, a rebellious “bad” Cinderella (Linedy Genao) sticks out, uninterested in beauty and fashion.

This makes her a perfect match for the second-in-line Prince Sebastian (Jordan Dobson), who is forced to find a wife — you know the rest.
