Rodgers + Hammerstein’s Cinderella
One of my earliest memories is colouring a picture of Cinderella in the living room. As I sat on the living room floor, contorted into a shape that only boneless children seem to achieve, I tried so hard to get the colours to match what the front of the colouring book looked like. I’d spend hours colouring the same dress as the last, only to look at it and somehow feel it was completely different that all the ones that had come before. I could never get that glass slipper to look quite right and I took much delight when my picture was done and it was time to start a fresh page.
Now I just buy the slippers like an adult
Now I’m an adult and sometimes, I still can’t get my slipper to look just right, so I turn to my super fashionable friends like Mr. and Mlle. Fab, (otherwise known as Ryan & Ksenia from the blog immrfabulous.com) for date night style advice!
Where are we off to? You guessed it! To see Cinderella! Here are some super magical suggestions for a night out on Broadway for any style!
Mlle Fab: As I’m a believer in supporting Canadian talent, I chose to feature Bodybag by Jude. She works in her Montreal shop and will include alterations and they are done BY HER. The beauty of these looks are their versatility. You can dress them up or down, depending on the event and season. A quick change in lipstick shade and a dramatic bangle can take you from office to to opera in 5 minutes!
Mr Fab: I love to pair a simple t-shirt with a blazer for nights out at the theatre. It looks dressy but if you get too warm, you can slip it off in the darkened theatre and no one is the wiser! Add a pocket square or a floral lapel pin and you’re rocking a fashion-forward look that shows you know what’s up.
Say yes to the dress
A little bit about the show:
Rodgers + Hammerstein’s Cinderella, the Tony Award-winning Broadway musical, is a lush production featuring an incredible orchestra, jaw-dropping transformations and all the moments you love—the pumpkin, the glass slipper, the masked ball and more—plus some surprising new twists!
More than just a pretty face with the right shoe size, this Cinderella is a contemporary figure living in a fairytale setting. She is a spirited young woman with savvy and soul who doesn’t let her rags or her gowns trip her up in her quest for kindness, compassion and forgiveness. She longs to escape the drudgery of her work at home and instead work to make the world a better place. She not only fights for her own dreams, but forces the prince to open his eyes to the world around him and realize his dreams too.
But what, oh what, should we wear to the ball? That’s where you come in! Want some free tickets? Yes you do.
