Disclaimer: I was not compensated for this post. I received complimentary tickets for review purposes. All opinions are my own.
My family and I attended a press preview of the futuristic fairytale, Interstellar Cinderella and we all enjoyed the show from start to finish! Pre-show activities included a reading of the book and a “Make your own spaceship” craft that got us all ready to travel into the future with the cast.
Nov. 18th – Dec. 17th
The Beckett Theatre at Theatre Row
Music and Lyrics by Laurie Berkner
Book by Barbara Zinn Krieger
Directed by Marty Johnson
Based on the book by Deborah Underwood
Cinderella has always been one of my favorite fairytales and I didn’t think it could get any better, but Interstellar Cinderella, made the story come to life in a super modern way set in the year 3017! During the show, we were fully engaged and entertained, not sure what would come next and to our delight, independent space engineer, Interstellar Cinderella saves the day and chooses her own destiny!
Interstellar Cinderella is perfect for kids of all ages, my 3,5 & 8 year old loved it. Even, my husband said it was one f the best kids shows he has seen in a while. Plus, there are some fun throwback songs that will entertain any die-hard Laurie Berner fans too!
