Hip Hop Cinderella is a modern -- and futuristic -- twist on the classic tale, complete with rap battles, a brilliantly feisty and courageous Cinderella, and yea, an evil stepmother and all that too. But several important factors separate this version from the original, and it seems to make for a fun, family-friendly, uplifting and empowering show.

Helping propel this latest Hip Hop theater extravaganza to acclaim is composer and lyricist Rona Siddiqui. Rona is a Grammy-nominated Composer/Lyricist/Music Director from New York, a recipient of the Jonathan Larson Grant, Billie Burke Ziegfeld Award, and was named one of Broadway Women's Fund's Women to Watch.

Holding down the iconic title role, is Brittany Nicole Williams, an alumnus of The Ailey School and AMDA New York, who recently made her Broadway debut in Aladdin, and has performed in multiple 1st Broadway National Tours and regional theaters.
