If you only watch one musical adaptation of Cinderella, set to the music of Beyoncé today, let it be Cinderoncé.
The YouTubusical gives the rags to royalty story of the Disney classic a fierce—make that, Sasha Fierce—twist: Cinderoncé gets a "Freakum Dress" makeover courtesy of her fairy drag mother Shangella from RuPaul's Drag Race. Single ladies dance to "Single Ladies" at the ball. Etc.
And, as one E! Online staffer admitted, "I got chills when he put the glass slipper on and 'Love on Top' started *tear*"
Cinderoncé comes from former American Idol finalist and YouTube personality Todrick Hall. It'd be easy to brush the mini-musical off as just another YouTube parody—been there, done that—if the video weren't done so well. Queen Bey's songs all fit in the story and the spectacle of it all is rather impressive.
Not every YouTube video has the budget for a ball, after all.
Now, if you want to watch two musicals adaptations of Cinderella, read on.
Last year, Todrick Hall created CinderFella, another musical adaptation of the Cinderella story, but this time with a gay twist. If you liked Cinderoncé, you'll probably like this one too...
