The timeless enchantment of a magical fairy tale is reborn with the Rodgers & Hammerstein hallmarks of originality, charm and elegance. Originally presented on television in 1957 starring Julie Andrews, Cinderella was at the time the most widely viewed program in the history of the medium.
Its recreation in 1965 starring Lesley Ann Warren was no less successful in transporting a new generation to the miraculous kingdom of dreams-come-true. So was a second remake in 1997, which starred Brandy as Cinderella and Whitney Houston as her Fairy Godmother.
