I am so glad I'm not Cinderella.
As the story goes, I'm fine with her lap of luxury-turned-hard knock life. Ditto, even, with the wretched stepsisters and hideous, master manipulator stepmother. And I think (though they may be extremely painful at times) I could even tolerate the glass slippers.
No, my big problem would be the whole midnight curfew deal.
What fun is wrapping up a good night out at the strike of twelve? Everybody knows the really crazy shit goes down at White Castle after the bars close.
But I digress.
Whether you are a fan of Prince Charming's dashing good looks or the bad ass way Cinderella wields a broom, you can get your fix of the classic Once upon a time fairy this weekend.
The Cincinnati Ballet is dusting off its glass ballet slippers (aside: I wonder if strippers are the symbolism for the modern day Cinderella...) and unleashing the ugly step sisters starting Friday evening at the Aronoff.
The Corps De Ballet and crew hit the stage Friday evening at 8 pm, Saturday at 2 pm and 8 pm, and Sunday at 2 pm. Click the link above for more information on the show and to purchase tickets.
