Broadway Song of the Week


Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella

Playwright: Douglas Carter Beane

Release date: March 31, 1957

Song: “In My Own Little Corner”

In Ella’s “own little corner” with her “own little chair,” she dreams she can be anything and go anywhere. She sings about her endless possibilities of being a Norwegian Princess or an heiress from Japan. She sings about going on an African safari and dancing upon the sea. But her dreams fade away and she’s back in her “own little corner.”
