On The Red Carpet: BAD CINDERELLA Opening Night with Cast and Celebrity VIP Guests
Updated: Mar 28
"I'm not your Cinderella, I'm your BAD CINDERELLA!"
I was on the red carpet for the opening night of Andrew Lloyd Webber's new musical BAD CINDERELLA now playing at The Imperial Theatre. This was one of the most fun red carpets I have been on in quite some time, it was also SO SO BIG!!!! On one side of the tent was the "photographers" on the other side, was "video" and it was glorious!!
I spoke with the cast, including the leads Linedy Genao (Bad Cinderella), Carolee Carmello (Evil Stepmother), Jordan Dobson (Prince Sebastian), Cameron Loyal (Prince Charming). Some of the celebrity guests I spoke with included Alex Brightman, Chris Olsen, Elizabeth Teeter, Wendell Pierce, and Tinkerbelle & Belle (yes, my first time interviewing dogs!!!). Check out all the fun below!
