This past Friday I got to mark one item off my musical bucket list!! I finally got to see Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella!!
I was so bummed I missed the show last fall when it toured in Memphis and again last spring when it was in NWA (North West Arkansas). Damn school…LOL!! So you have no idea how pumped I was to see it on the lineup for Little Rock this year!!
In Little Rock we only have one theater, Robinson Center Music Hall, and it has been closed for a full renovation for the past two years and just opened up again this past November. They have an amazing lieu of shows for this season and I can’t wait to see what comes next season as well. Plus now I won’t have to drive t Memphis to get my musical fix, HA!
Here is an outside shot of the newly renovated Robinson Center Music Hall…
…it was lit up blue for Cinderella!
I love how the Robinson really celebrates each show that is performed there. It was green a few years ago when I saw Wicked!
I really wish I had gotten some good inside shots but the show ran late and I was coming from work so I felt rushed when I got there. Note- this was from before the show ever began, I can’t stand when people take pics during the show!! #PetPeeve
I guess this one stage shot will have to do until next month when I go see Phantom of the Opera!! I will try and take more pics then, it truly is a beautiful building on the inside!!
Enough about the Robinson, have you seen Cinderella live on stage? It’s different from the movie and if I am being totally honest with you I will tell you that I prefer the movie version best! But maybe because that’s what I grew up with. Don’t get me wrong, the stage show is amazing but I did catch myself wondering if I was at Cinderella during a few parts. Also- the stepsisters were my absolute favorite!!!
Have you seen Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella??
Are you a fan of musicals??

Cinderella is one of my favorite movies and I know that the play was absolutely amazing! The musical hall looks so grand. I’m so glad you had a good time!

I’ve never seen Cinderella on stage. I’d love to see it! I love how the music hall is all lit up in blue to celebrate Cinderella. Looks like an awesome place now that it’s renovated.

Cinderella is just a timeless story. I’m sure they did justice to the story with their portrayal in the movie.

I love watching people perform on stage. I remember being in dance and performing on stage. It can be frightening sometimes.
I love Cinderella! This had to have been fantastic to see! What a fantastic opportunity.

This is such a classic story that my whole family loves. It must have been an amazing experience to see it live on stage. I hope this show comes to my area.
How wonderful for you to get to see Cinderella. Every year I use to watch Cinderella on tv when it was shown. Brings back so many great memories. So magical and as I got older the story line really became important and meant something.

I just love Cinderella! I’m sure it was awesome in person even if it was slightly different. It seems they do that a lot with stage shows. Hopefully it will come to Pittsburgh soon.
Wow! What a cool experience! It sounds like an amazing show.
Wow, I bet the show was fantastic. I haven’t been to see a play in far too long.
Wow that stage setting is phenomenal! I miss seeing stage productions, I also used to be in a few which was fun.

That must be so thrilling seeing it on the stage! My daughter would sure be thrilled to watch it live!

I can’t remember the last time I saw a live show. This looks like it was beautiful, very pretty set.
I’m a big fan of musicals! I haven’t seen Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella on stage yet, but I’d love to!
Ah I would love to see this. Taking my daughter would be so much fun! It is such a classic story, I need to remember theater and plays as an option more often for family date ideas.
Cinderella is one of my favorite characters! I watched the movie multiple times.. I would love to see this!
Looks like they have done really good renovation and glad you got your musical fix
Lisa Heath says
I am SO JEALOUS! One of my absolute favorites and I would be so overjoyed to have the opportunity to see this live!
