Andrew Lloyd Webber announced today that the world premiere of his new musical Cinderella will now open at The Gillian Lynne Theatre on Wednesday 28 October, with previews from Friday 9 October.

Lloyd Webber said “The show will go on sale next week as planned, but in the current global circumstances the creative team and I feel that this later opening date is wise.

Full scale pre-rehearsals of Cinderella will take place with our leading actors, as planned, throughout this month”.

Tickets will go on General Sale on Friday 20 March.

Carrie Hope Fletcher will play Cinderella in the highly anticipated new production at the Gillian Lynne Theatre.
