Creatives Announced For World Premiere Andrew Lloyd Webber CINDERELLA

According to a new report, Andrew Lloyd Webber, currently  working on the  world premiere of his new musical adaptation of Cinderella with a contemporary twist.

With  Laurence Connor due to direct (School of Rock, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat), with Gabriela Tylesova on scenic & costume design and Joann Hunter as choreographer. The musical features lyrics by David Zippel and a book by actress and writer Emerald Fennel. Lloyd Webber said of the creative team's non-traditional approach to the material."They have remade Cinderella into a completely modern, feisty girl," said  "Every piece of the story is followed, but it will be turned around so it's not at all what you expect it to be. It just turns the whole thing around on itself." The classic fairy tale gets a makeover that includes a feisty, fiery version of the titular princess who falls in love with an awkward oddball named Sebastian, and a gay love story involving Prince Charming and a duke.
Lord Lloyd Webber, is working on a new score with Carrie Hope Fletcher with a dance workshop planned for March in London, with the show aiming for a 2020 London opening, subject to theatre  availability.
The London workshop held earlier this year had a cast including Carrie Hope Fletcher as Cinderella, Tyrone Huntley as Sebastian, Gary Wilmot as Jean, Ruthie Henshall as Queen, Victoria Hamilton-Barritt as Stepmother, Sophie Isaacs as Adele, and Rebecca Trehearn as Marie.The ensemble included Lucy Anderson, Dan Buckley, Charlie Burn, Ronan Burns (Duke), Darragh Cowley, Daniel Crowder, Jonny Fines (Prince Charming), Ahmed Hamad, Danny Michaels, Jo Napthine, Oliver Ormson (Dorian), Jemma Revell, and Gabriella Williams.
