Matthew Bourne's Cinderella at Ahmanson Theatre in Los Angeles

Once upon a time, I lived in Los Angeles. I had the opportunity to see "Into the Woods" at the Ahmanson Theatre many moons ago. If I still lived there, I would have loved to see this current production of a WWII era Cinderella. The costuming alone is enticing from the promotional images. There are more images on Facebook.

From the promotional email:

Matthew Bourne transforms the classic fairy tale into a wartime romance with a twist of Hollywood glamour. A chance meeting results in a magical night for Cinderella and her dashing young RAF pilot, together just long enough to fall in love before being parted by the Blitz.

Performed to Prokofiev’s magnificent score, this new production comes alive with heart-stopping choreography, vivid theatrical storytelling, and sumptuous award-winning scenic and costume designs that will transport audiences to the heart of war-torn London for a timeless story of the power of love.

You can get some glimpses of the production in this promotional video where the dancing looks exquisite, too.
