Cinderella Eats Rice and Beans: A Salsa Fairy Tale
What will happen to Cinderella at the ball…game? That’s the surprising climactic question in this contemporary Latin-American Cinderella Musical, which delightfully turns the classic fairy tale on its head, telling the story from both Cinderella’s and the “step-sister’s” perspective.
“(Zacarías) uses humor expertly…creating a recognizable everyday situation to reel in her young audience…Songs by La Puma add grace notes and drive the message home in cheerful bursts.”
– Jane Horowitz, The Washington Post
