NEW VIDEO! Carrie Hope Fletcher performs "Far Too Late" from Lloyd Webber musical Cinderella

In a parallel universe, Cinderella would have been opening for previews very soon. Unfortunately, the Gillian Lynne Theatre's doors remain closed, at least for the time being. But at least now we finally get a long-awaited teaser of the show's fabulous musical numbers. Watch a 30-second clip from the music video below of Carrie Hope Fletcher (Heathers, Les Miserables) performing the show's new song "Far Too Late" in an empty auditorium at Her Majesty's Theatre, home to Andrew Lloyd Webber's Phantom of the Opera.

Andrew Lloyd Webber throws shade as he dedicates song to the Government

In the full video clip, which can be viewed here on Vimeo, Andrew Lloyd Webber called Carrie Hope Fletcher a "fantastic singer" and made a point to dedicate the debut of the new song "Far Too Late" to the UK Government and the governments of various countries, stating: "We're getting to the point where it is far too late. We want to get back to the theatre again. We want to be open."

Official opening night is scheduled to take place on 7 April.

About the new Cinderella Lloyd Webber musical

Written by David Zippel (City of Angels) and Emerald Fennel (Killing Eve, A Promising Young Woman), the new Cinderella musical takes everything you know about the classic fairytale and turns it on its head, offering something fresh and different to the table. The production is directed by Laurence Connor and features choreography by JoAnn Hunter. It stars Carrie Hope Fletcher in the eponymous role opposite Victoria Hamilton-Barritt as the Wicked Stepmother. Further casting and creative team are to be announced in due course.
