Charles Strouse, composer of Bye, Bye Birdie and Applause! has written another fantastic score with a today sound in rocking rollicking rhythms to David Rogers' lilting, laughing lyrics

And June Walker Rogers has provided a hilarious comedy-spoof book based on Sir Osbert Sitwell's Cinderella Complex

Poor Cinderella?

Not this time! It's poor stepmother and sisters—sweetly, desperately trying to drag Cinderella away from her beloved brooms and brushes to the ball!

Two godmothers! Yes, Two!

One tells Cinderella the truth that she must shape up and stop making herself and everyone else miserable

The other gives advice on how to make everyone even more miserable! One royal family—one! The king, determined to marry off his son; the queen, determined not to The prince, a lyric tenor who says nothing

It's all upside down and all laughs. True to tradition, Cinderella wins her prince but there is an interesting switch
