The songs are not just spectacle, but meaty character development, ruminating on the singers' lives and larger questions. Can you never do anything without squabbling? It has always been the custom for the heir to the throne to take a wife in good time. Some swoon more than others, sir, and swooning to excess is not a quality I greatly admire. She has a beautiful voice and does a great job with a very passive character. Live down here on your own, no you? And for repaying my kindness with cunning and deceit, henceforth, you will not dare to venture from this room without my saying.
A musical re-imagining of the classic fairy tale. Is being made even as we speak. Synopsis In the tiny kingdom of Euphrania, the King and his court are most anxious to get Prince Edward wed. Well, we'd all like to celebrate that. Oh, yes, how stupid of me. When the King reaches for the Chamberlain's staff and takes out a secret flask from the top it is a beautifully simple yet funny scene which you can't but help smile at and there are a lot more.
And I totally refuse to take part in such an embarrassing charade. I wish you'd tell him. Think, mama-- we were actually there at the castle. I couldn't have said that better myself. Oh, mama, she's so beastly to me! Welcome home, your royal highness.
Perhaps pale rather than fair. Off you go, and enjoy yourself. To be blunt, because the hour is late. My father never loved you. Since they have dismissed the rest of the staff, Cinderella is overwhelmed by work until her no nonsense fairy godmother comes to the rescue. I can't keep up with fashion.
The staff have been dismissed. Shouldn't there be something before that? You wicked girl, how dare you disobey me. She certainly behaved like a princess. People looking for you everywhere. In a surprising twist, Edward's cousin and the chosen bride fall in love at first sight, and marry, thus fulfilling the alliance after all. Is that the wrong way round? The greatest ball that has ever been known, sire.
But the fact remains that I am what I am: A servant! Do not tease, my darlings. But a cheery fairy godmother helps her with her impossible tasks, and even gets her to take an evening out at the King's bride-finding ball. I'm sick and tired of being treated like some village idiot! The writing is wickedly smart, examining aspects of the fairy tale that are rarely seen. This is believable escapism, and apart from the odd haircut here and there and occasional choreography, doesn't really date. It's not his positioh, you see.
Why can't one of me perform all the cloying amenities ti while the other me, twin brother me be a free and happy soul? And she was fair, was she not? Would that it could remain so, but the times demand something different. And that is why I am here, burdened with this unhappy task. But even if you alter the constitutioh, your majesty, it doesn't solve the problem of the other bride. You're welcome to share my fire. You will need a sword. Why should love enter into it at all? Oh, mama, sun's so beastly! I'll hide you under here. It's staring you in the face.
If I may, sir, by roux leave, this thing is choking me. No, mama, you promised me first pick. Meanwhile, young Cinderella Gemma Craven has just lost her beloved father. I am more than her legal guardian. His biting frustration and despair at not finding Cinderella and his resignation to his royal shackles bring a depth to the prince that is rarely seen. Yes, delighted to see you return.
