CINDY-ELLA 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 I Gotta Shoe was originally commissioned by the BBC and originally broadcast on radio in 1957. Following that, it was adapted into a novel, a stage show, and a gramophone record. 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.
