Rodgers + Hammerstein's Cinderella on The Balancing Act

You can click on the above to see it larger, but the gist is this:

Watch Lifetime to meet Cast Members from Cinderella on Tuesday, August 25 and September 1 at 7:30am (ET/PT)
Check local listings for details.

Tune in as The Balancing Act® takes you behind the scenes of the newly reimagined Rodgers + Hammerstein's classic, Cinderella, an updated version for the 21st century. The Balancing Act’s® correspondent, Amber Milt, introduces Paige Faure (“Ella”), the talented leading actress starring in the national tour, as she navigates the demands of her life on stage and off, raising her son on the road and performing eight times per week. We’ll also see the supportive environment Paige shares with her fellow actors including Andy Huntington Jones (“Topher”), who recently found his “fairytale ending.” In addition to Paige and Andy, we’ll hear from Jill Furman (Producer) and Douglas Carter Beane (Book Writer), who re-imagined this classic tale with an inspiring and new contemporary perspective.

I've always had great affection for Rodgers + Hammerstein's Cinderella. I saw a local production of it a few years ago and I found even greater affection for it then. Somehow none of the film versions have thrilled me very much--the Julie Andrews' version--Rodgers & Hammerstein's Cinderella (1957 Television Production)--is by far my favorite, but the recording and production values make it hard to relax and fully enjoy it, too.
