The familiar tale of Cinderella, with all the basic elements in place—but told here with a considerable and highly imaginative difference. Cinderella, and the other characters, think and speak in modern terms, replacing the innocent mood of the original with the very hip and knowing attitudes of today’s young people. The stepsisters are more boy crazy than ugly; their mother more silly than cruel; and the prince is so bashful and tongue-tied that he hides whenever a girl comes into view. And Cinderella does wear combat boots to the ball—which is delightfully consistent with the wacky, tongue-in-cheek, and continually diverting style of this thoroughly charming short play.
