Cindy-Ella began life as a BBC television production that was broadcast at Christmas 1957, with the well known Cinderella story being transplanted into the American Deep South. The success of the broadcast led to a book, which in turn was read on BBC by Cleo Laine and Elisabeth Welch and prompted calls for a stage production, which duly opened in the West End in 1962. Also appearing in the play (and subsequent cast recording) are Cy Grant and George Browne, although the team had little more than two weeks to rehearse. The end result was a remarkable piece of work, as the original sleeve notes indicated. Setting the Cinderella story in the Deep South has given it a new and clement climate. It is a summer pantomime.

Format: Audio CDVerified Purchase
Bought to replace a secondhand vinyl version that someone had obviously tried to make a fruit bowl with! I was familiar with the score and bought it solely for the presence of Elisabeth Welch. There is nothing musical that makes you sit up and listen and the only thing that comes over these days is the awful stereotyped 'Honey Chile' approach to black people from that era. I think it will appeal only to people of a certain age who may remember the production and even the presence of Cleo Laine does little to raise it.
