Go behind the curtain of a new musical in development

Be among the first in the world to experience the latest original songs from the musical Ever After as it continues in its development from page to the stage.

A more realistic take on the Cinderella fairy tale, Ever After is a captivating musical in development based on the beloved film.

During this special concert event, the music will take you through the story of Danielle de Barbarac as she risks everything to save a friend from an unjust fate, capturing the heart and imagination of a country along the way. With the help of none other than Leonardo da Vinci, Danielle must decide who she is, what she’ll fight for, and how far she’ll go for love.

Featuring four Broadway singers, members of the creative team, a 14-piece orchestra, and the three-time Grammy Award-winning Sounds of Blackness, this concert will give you the chance to peek behind the curtain and experience the magic of this new musical on its journey to the stage.
