Meet the Modern Day Cinderella
February 9, 2016
An exclusive interview with the talented actress starring as this reimagined heroine
With its fresh new take on the beloved tale of a young woman who is transformed from a chambermaid into a princess, this hilarious and romantic take on Cinderella combines the story’s classic elements – glass slippers, pumpkin, and a beautiful ball – along with some surprising twists.
More than just a pretty face with the right shoe size, this Cinderella is a contemporary figure living in a fairytale setting. She is a spirited young woman with savvy and soul who doesn’t let her rags or her gowns trip her up in her quest for kindness, compassion, and forgiveness. She longs to escape the drudgery of her work at home and instead work to make the world a better place. She is the Cinderella of the 21st century.
The Balancing Act correspondent, Amber Milt, takes viewers to Cleveland to meet Paige Faure, the talented actress starring as this reimagined heroine. In the behind-the-scenes interview, she explains how she balances the demands of her life on stage and off – raising her son on the road and performing eight times per week.
