Andrew Lloyd Webber's Cinderella reschedules opening date to end of April 2021

Andrew Lloyd Webber's Cinderella has set a rescheduled opening date  at the Gillian Lynne Theatre, and is now scheduled to have its first preview a month later on 30th April 2021 with an opening night on 19th May. Ticket holders will be contacted regarding their booking, with tickets for new dates on sale now.

Lloyd Webber said: "50 years ago I couldn't get Jesus Christ Superstar on stage as nobody wanted to produce it, so it appeared on record first. It's so strange to find history repeating itself half a century later with the album of the complete score of my new Cinderella. I can't get Cinderella on stage because I'm not allowed to, so I have gone back to my roots and recorded the album first."

The album was recorded in  March 2020 via remote collaboration as well as socially distanced studio sessions. It will be released as a full album before it premieres on stage, with a date expected in early 2021. Cast members and guest artists are still to be announced.
