About the Show

An adult musical comedy where a group of Disney princesses, none too happy with the exploitation they've suffered in books and movies, are storming the castle to take their lives back!

The New York Times
December 17th, 2014

"This is feminism light, with sparkly costumes and high heels to keep the fantasy alive. A “ho” joke isn’t beneath the playwright’s dignity, and when the princesses rail against princes who expect them to do all the housework, the show feels like a girls’-night-out retro rebellion for the suburban oppressed."

"For a boozed-up bachelorette outing, I suppose Disenchanted could be a hoot, but its magic moments fade fast...This lampoon of Disney’s fairy-tale heroines is not so spellbinding."

Entertainment Weekly

"The comedy, which originated in Orlando, feels like counterprogramming to the theme-park stage shows that overrun that sunny town. But unfortunately, in big bad NYC, these ladies end up as flat on the stage as their Disney counterparts on a cel...The show, however, does not deliver on its clever premise, leaving its princesses in the lurch."

"With such funny, skilled performers, it would have been great if the book and lyrics contained as much solid wit as they do politics. ...Frankly, many of the show's gags fall flat. Jokes contained in songs like "Big Tits" often land with a thud, and by the time we get to the eating-disorder-themed "All I Wanna Do Is Eat," stomachs begin to churn at the triteness of the lyrics."

"Disenchanted! is smart, well-executed and innocuous, entertainment that delights, though feels over extended at times."

"A riotous gallery of costumes steal the show in this zany satire of Disney princesses."

The Huffington Post
December 31st, 2014

"Funny and a touch wicked, the book, lyrics and music by Dennis T. Giacino zings the banality of 'happily ever after'...While the show's pop score delivers, there are a few script groaners, such as the "All I Want To Do Is Eat" number, in an otherwise clever production."

"A vaudevillian evening of songs, dance, and laughs...they definitely push the envelope on tastefulness and stretch your imagination to the max...the show is less a retelling of the classics and more a satirical tribute to women's liberation and literature. It's fun when it works and pays off...All in all, the show is an innovation worth considering."

"This insanely talented guy has made my childhood dreams come true!...Kudos to director Fiely A. Matias and all the production people involved...But most importantly, it’s those ladies — their voices, singly and collectively. Each and every one of them could sing opera or hard rock effortlessly. We are talking MAJOR PIPES. Heck, who needs a prince when you’ve got princesses like that?"

"Disenchanted is a dirty, funny, feminist romp...The show is a great time if you are looking to escape your marriage, kids or are in need of a girls night out...We had a great time and it is a show that will make you literally laugh out loud. Simply a fun night out."

"Dennis T. Giacino and director Fiely A. Matias scored an A+ with this fantastically fabulous mini-musical based on some of the known Disney princesses...With a splash of whimsy, a boatload of laugh-out-loud moments, and morsels of truth, 'Disenchanted!' is simple, informative and charmingly ironic in its own right. A must see for any Disney fan with a sense of humor. The cast is magnetic and the music, absolutely noteworthy; most definitely worth watching more than once."

"Forget the view of the damsel in distress. These princesses have something to say and they say it with uncanny humor, charisma, and a show that will have you laughing from the very first scene."

"The play is written, acted, and sung with such sass and clever humor there are no old jokes here. And the voices...I would see this play for that alone just to hear how powerfully these women sing...Issues of race, sexuality, weight, and the effect The Princess Complex has on young girls are handled with aplomb, biting wit, and a warm heart. My only complaint is these ladies need a bigger stage and those voices deserve to be heard."

"It’s a fairly narrow concept for a 110-minute revue, but Dennis T. Giacino, who wrote the book, music and lyrics, has packed his songs and patter with a profusion of jokes that hit at least as much as they miss...As its title suggests, Disenchanted! is hardly enchanting, but it is rambunctious fun."

"These women are nothing like the shrinking dainty flowers you would expect, they attack the stage with booming powerful voices and fills the room with music and biting wit...The show is not only entertaining it is informative and empowering."
