Sebastian finally recognizes Cinderella, but she dismisses him, heartbroken. She rips her dress and wig off (“I Know I Have a Heart”). Sebastian is anguished that he hurt Cinderella. The Hunks mock-congratulate him (“Act 2, Scene 2”). In frustration, he defends himself and begins to act like a prince (“I Am No Longer Me”). At home, the Stepmother gloats over Adele’s engagement as they prepare for the wedding. Marie is jealous (“Moment of Triumph”). The Stepmother mocks Cinderella for failing to see that Sebastian loves her (“What Were You Thinking?”). Cinderella despairs that she has lost her only best friend/love (“Far Too Late”). She starts packing her things to leave Belleville, but Marie encourages her to stop Sebastian and Adele’s wedding, and tell Sebastian how she really feels (“Ego Has a Price” (reprise of “Beauty Has a Price”)). At the wedding (“The Wedding March”/”The Ceremony”), when the preacher asks for objections, Prince Charming (everyone is delighted to see him alive) stops the wedding to save Sebastian. To prevent his own arranged marriage, he faked his death and has returned to marry the love of his life. He comes out as gay and introduces his fiancée, the Duc de Violette (“Man’s Man” (reprise)). While the Stepmother is devastated as her plan unravels, the Queen is overjoyed, since this marriage will return Belleville to splendour. She declares that henceforth Belleville will be the city of love; everyone in Belleville cheers for the new Kings (“Marry for Love”), as the wedding bells ring out. Cinderella hears the bells and thinks that Sebastian is married. Shattered, she finishes packing and heads out of Belleville (“Cinderella’s Soliloquy”). At the Palace, Prince Charming and his new husband celebrate a lavish wedding reception, but Sebastian is miserable. Marie tells him about Cinderella’s plan to stop his wedding. Realizing that she plans to leave town, he decides to go after Cinderella. The Stepmother accuses the Queen of breaching their deal, but the Queen threatens to execute the Stepmother and throws her out of the Palace (“The Wedding Party”). Sebastian sees that the Godmother has Cinderella’s mother’s necklace, and the Godmother gives it to him. Sebastian arrives at Cinderella’s home to find only her crystal slippers. Luckily, Cinderella returns for the slippers (to sell them). Sebastian returns her necklace and tells her what happened; they both realize the error of their previous changes, and Sebastian decides to run away with Cinderella. They share a tender kiss (Finale).
