Cindy-ella

Cover to reissue Original London Cast Recording

or I Gotta Shoe

Garrick Theatre, London - 17 December, 1962 (season)

Revue conceived by Caryl Brahms and Ned Sherrin. Traditional music; additional music by Peter Knight and Ron Grainer


CINDY-ELLA is set in no regulation fairyland. We cannot say for sure whether we have set our Fairyland down in the Deep South or removed the Deep South to our Fairyland; certainly we have borrowed the Cinderella story from Perrault and told it as a Mammy might tell the tale of Cindy-Ella to her little girl in a tenement yard in New Orleans.

Caryl Brahms and Ned Sherrin
