Brokaw to helm ‘Cinderella’

Director reteams with Beane for musical

Mark Brokaw has signed on to direct “Cinderella,” the updated version of the Rodgers and Hammerstein tuner aiming for Broadway in the 2012-13 season.

Brokaw’s musical credits include “Cry-Baby” on Broadway as well as the Kennedy Center staging of “A Little Night Music” and “Marty” at the Huntington. He’s also helmed a string of plays including “This is Our Youth,” “2.5 Minute Ride,” “The Language Archive” and the original production of “How I Learned to Drive.”

“Cinderella” reunites Brokaw with scribe Douglas Carter Beane (“Sister Act,” “Lysistrata Jones”), who pens the new book for the musical. Director has previously helmed Beane plays “As Bees in Honey Drown” and “Music from a Sparkling Planet.”

New book will give the fairy tale a modern, girl-power spin, incorporating tunes from the original score as well as Rodgers and Hammerstein’s catalog of songs that never made it into other musicals.

New version of the show is produced by Robyn Goodman (“Avenue Q,” In the Heights”) with Aged in Wood Prods.

An industry reading of “Cinderella” is skedded for next week. Casting for the full production and exact Broadway details remain to be nailed down.
