Tonight's Show of the Week presents for the first time Cinderella without her Rockafella-Esther Ofarim in her first solo show. The delightful, faun-like Esther will be singing a whole range of songs-from the Beatles' number she's made her own, ' She's leaving Home,' to two numbers from the American smash hit musical Hair."
