Be drawn in by these characters as they move through the surreal and beautiful world of this beloved fairy tale. With a little help from a certain Fairy Godmother, Cinderella is sure to be a delight for all ages.
“Liang’s Cinderella includes the pratfalls that will tickle its youngest audiences, the romantic passages that will enchant the balletomanes, and enough promise to convince us the choreographer’s shoe fits his foot stylishly.” – Columbus Alive
