Princesses come to power in many different ways.
Sometimes they receive their status by kissing a frog, being born into a prominent family, or eating chemically-treated apples. And some princesses take matters into their own hands, err, feet.
Such is the case with Rodgers + Hammerstein's Cinderella, now performing at The Fox Theatre. The songs are catchy, and the performers certainly are quite talented in song and dance -- but the real standout of this performance is the costume designers. The special effects created by a 'whirl' here and a 'twirl' there leave the audience captivated. I'll admit to spending a few too many minutes contemplating the ins-and-outs of such costuming genius in between songs and settings.
If your daughter is a fan of princess stories, you won't want to miss this lovely performance about a strong, outspoken and wise girl destined to do something meaningful with the life she has been dealt. This Cinderella story was anything but ordinary, not unlike the musical's namesake.
Cinderella is at The Fox Theatre for a limited time: November 3-8, 2015.
