Desert Stages Theatre Creator, Gerry Cullity put a ragtime spin on the timeless story of a long-suffering step-sister, a choosy prince and a glass slipper. Set in turn-of-last-century New York City during the height of immigration, Cullity's delightful characters are those coming from the New World in hopes of starting a new life in a foreign land. Themes of love and achieving our heart's desire against Company odds are woven through this charming rags-to-riches tale that features memorable Cullity songs like Smile Check and This Place Is Magic.
