(Welcome to The Quarantine Stream, a series where the /Film team shares what they’ve been watching while social distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic.)
The Movie: Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Cinderella
Where You Can Stream It: Disney+
The Pitch: Co-produced by Whitney Houston, who also appears as Cinderella’s Fairy Godmother, the 1997 remake of the Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Cinderella TV musical features a “color-blind” cast led by a lovely Brandy, at the height of her R&B and acting career.
Why It’s Essential Quarantine Viewing: Because the world is full of zanies and fools who don’t believe that the Brandy Cinderella is a bonafide classic.
