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! More…

Poisoned apples. Glass slippers. Who needs ‘em?! Not Snow White and her posse of disenchanted princesses in the hit musical that’s anything but Grimm. Forget the princesses you think you know. After multiple sold-out runs nationwide, these royal renegades toss off their tiaras to bring their subversive, not-for-the-kiddies musical to New York City – and fairy tales will never be the same!

See it if You either love the Disney princesses and don't mind them being gently mocked, or don't like Disney princesses and like mocking them.

Don't see it if You don't want to mess with your childhood, or you want a deeper deconstruction than the obvious punchline (lol, Mulan must be lesbian, lol)

Thought-provoking, Hilarious, Entertaining, Delightful, Clever

See it if you ever wondered what happened behind the scenes with the Disney Princesses. It is very creative, and the dialogue is w biting and pointed

See it if you love to laugh at incredibly talented women. You'll enjoy it even more if you're a Disney movie fan, or have any theme park experience.

Don't see it if You're a prude, or would be offended by changing Disney princess stories.

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 suburba...

"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."

"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...

"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-them...
