A perennial favorite of NYTB audiences across America, Cinderella is one hour in length with choreography by Donald Mahler, costumes by Sylvia Taalson Nolan, and set design by Gillian Bradshaw-Smith.
“Gillian Bradshaw-Smith’s ingenious scenery included a clock that came alive and danced, and furniture that moved magically about. And Sylvia Taalsohn Nolan, the imaginative costume designer, created a gasp-producing moment when Cinderella’s attire changed miraculously from rags to the riches of a ball gown.”
