Ever After, the 1998 Cinderella-inspired film starring Drew Barrymore, is getting the musical treatment. 

The Paper Mill Playhouse in New Jersey announced on Friday that it will host the world premiere of Ever After on May 21, featuring two-time Tony Award winner Christine Ebersole, with three-time Tony winner Kathleen Marshall on board to choreograph and direct.

As the Paper Mill release stated, “Ever After sets the record straight on the fable of Cinderella. It was never about fairy godmothers, talking mice, or magic pumpkins. Her name was Danielle and it was always about her wit, her smarts, her strength, and her good friend Leonardo da Vinci. She makes her own dreams come true.”

Ever After is currently slated for a one-month run.
