NOT THE ORIGINAL BROADWAY CAST but the 1957 CBS TV production, FANTASTIC in it's own right.

While this is a fantastic recording, especially Julie Andrews who has never sounded better, it is NOT the BROADWAY CAST production. This is in fact, and it even says so right on the cover art and I quote: "The CBS Television production of Rodgers and Hammerstein's Cinderell starring Julie Andrews" Please note, that does not take away from the production value of this recording, with according my my purchsed CD copy was done in super bit technology so I'm sure it has been remastered (in 1999 if I'm not mistaken). I have seen this production as it has been rebroadcast recently within the past few years upon PBS stations nationwide in their Great Performances series (I saw it only a few months ago on the WOSU station) and is available for purchase at many outlets or from PBS and other internet vendors. IF you are looking for a nicely done (and if you're going for video please remember that cinescopes from the 50's era were not the best B&W quality for video transfer) musical story of the Cinderella story that has some humor in it as well then this might be what you want. As always, iTunes does give you the chance to listen to and in the case of video view a little bit of usually each track upon any given offering. My suggestion is to listen to the previews and then make your decision. I personally WANTED the Julie Andrews TV version (which is why I purchased this particular item). I just don't want anyone to misunderstand prior to making their purchase.

So Good!!

How can this possibly be bad when Julie Andrews is the star??!! The cast is wonderful and the score by Rodgers and Hammerstein is timeless!! This is a soundtrack I could listen to over and over again.

Most Viewed Television Event of All Time

I grew up watching Leslie Anne Warren perform this in the 60's, little realizing that it was originally written for my childhood idol, Julie Andrews. Although it is rather light for Rogers and Hammerstein, that lightness feels right for the story and fits Julie Andrews like a tailored suit. Recorded in mercurial, fragile Kinescope, this version was misplaced for many years and thought to have been destroyed. The fact that it has been found and restored is a gift to the history of American theater. The production was aired live, one night only, during one of Andrews' rare breaks from her grueling My Fair Lady schedule. It tops all other American television events by quite a margin, weighing in at an amazing 107+ million viewers, topping Elvis on the Ed Sullivan Show (60 million), the MASH finale (50+ million), and the birth of Little Ricky on I Love Lucy (44 million). The streets of every major American city were deserted that night, including New York City, a phenomenon that stunned Julie Andrews herself when she emerged from the studio to head home that evening.

At the commercial height of her career in the '60s, actress/singer Julie Andrews could claim to be the primary performer associated with the longest-running musical in Broadway history, the highest-grossing Hollywood film ever made, and the biggest-selling album of all time. Each of those achievements was surpassed by others eventually, of course, but Andrews, while experiencing the ups and downs that are the lot of any popular entertainment figure, retained her status as a theater and film legend,...
