La Bella Cinderella
- winner of

Minneapolis Fringe Festival.
"There aren't many Fringe offerings
that are truly all-ages shows, but this is one and it's very fun,
even if attending kid-less. It's an adaptation of "La Cenerentola,"
the Italian folk tale that inspired "Cinderella" (and Rossini's opera),
but in Claudia Haas' version, the title character is OCD about cleaning,
which is too much for her stepmother but just right for an order-obsessed
prince. It's presented with the kind of comedies performed in Renaissance-era
public squares, and is delivered with a light touch and plenty of
kid-pleasing charm." - Rob Hubbard, St. Paul Pioneer Press
