Quote of the Day (Paula Poundstone, on Why ‘Cinderella is a Terrible Story for Girls’)

“Cinderella is a terrible story for girls, unless you want them to cry to get what they want, waste opportunities, and ruin pumpkins.” ―Stand-up comedian Paula Poundstone, tweet of December 19, 2014

Something to keep in the back of your mind these days as you watch Stephen Sondheim’s musical Into the Woods, on film or in revival onstage.
