The version of Rodgers and Hammerstein's "Cinderella" that has opened for a week-long run at the Bushnell is about more than a fairy godmother transforming a girl in rags into a stunning sparkly gown and glass slipper-wearing princess.
The reworked book whisks in more modern humor and quirkiness to the fairy tale and weaves in broader social motifs about the impact of kindness on people and the greater good and what you can accomplish being yourself, lead actors Kaitlyn Davidson (Ella) and Andy Huntington Jones (Prince Topher) said when they visited NBC Connecticut the day after opening night Jan. 12.
The show runs through Jan. 17 at the Bushnell. More information is available at bushnell.org.
