Last summer I got to be Queen (for an evening) at a medieval dinner in Austria. Royalty definitely has it perks– as I had servants serve my dinner and my two Ladies in Waiting had to do my bidding. I also used to live in England where people adulated their royalty, and girls did grow up hoping to become a Princess Diana.
Don’t forget those glass slippers, Cinderella.
Note: The Tucson Weekly reported last week that this play is not the traditional Cinderella story, as it will be Bollywood style, with the setting in India. Just so you won’t be surprised.
