Musical theatre titan Andrew Lloyd Webber held private industry presentations of his new Cinderella musical this week at London's The Other Palace.

As previously announced, Lloyd Webber's collaborators on the project are Killing Eve writer and The Crown actor Emerald Fennell and City of Angels and Hercules lyricist David Zippel. In Fennell’s script, according to Michael Riedel of The New York Post, Prince Charming is gay, and pairs up with a duke—leaving Cinderella to find a romance of her own.

No word yet on future iterations of the project.
