If you are a Broadway lover like I am, the title of this writing might be familiar to you. If you are not, then perhaps I should start with a brief introduction of the title. The title came from a well known Broadway show by Roger and Hammerstein “Cinderella”, in which like any other version except the original one, talks about this young, soon to be, princess lies in distress until one day she could meet her prince charming and got swooped away to happily ever after. But that is far from the point I’m trying to make here.
