The classic fairytale musical Cinderella is coming to London’s West End in spring 2021. Andrew Lloyd Webber is set to head up the new musical production at Gillian Lynne Theatre between Holborn and Covent Garden. With an A-list creative team at its helm, the show is set to be nothing short of spectacular when it opens this Autumn.
Emmy, Grammy, Olivier and Tony-awarding winning Andrew Lloyd Weber is in charge of music for the UK production of Cinderella. The musical theatre legend is teaming up with choreographer JoAnn Hunter and director Laurence Connor for Cinderella, with the trio previously lending their expertise to the smash-hit favorites School Of Rock and Joseph And The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.
Laurence Connor has also previously worked on both Les Misérables, and The Phantom Of The Opera, while JoAnn Hunter has worked on over 20 Broadway shows, including Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, Curtains and Oliver.
Acclaimed American lyricist and Tony Award winner David Zippel is providing the lyrics for the musical. Nominated for two Academy Awards for his work on Mulan and Hercules, Zippel has also been nominated for three Golden Globes.
The London production of Cinderella also features an original book by Emmy-Award winning screenwriter Emerald Fennell, best known for her work as lead scriptwriter on hit television series, Killing Eve. Fennell is also an actress, appearing in The Crown and Call The Midwife.
