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!

Funny, Edgy, Enchanting, Raunchy, Relevant

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)

Clever, Delightful, Funny, Fluffy

See it if you love fairy tales, Disney princesses, satire, new takes on old warhorses. No need for princes here!

Don't see it if you like your fairy tales straight, no chaser. These princesses tell you 'happily ever after' might not be all it's cracked up to be. Fun!

Delightful, Clever, Entertaining, Funny, Great singing

See it if You want a fun night listening to great singing about un-told princess stories. You like Disney movies. You go in with no expectation, funny

Don't see it if You want a show with story line.. You cant stand Disney characters... You are looking for drama show.. You are a prune who expects too much.

Enchanting, Hilarious, Refreshing, Fluffy, Great acting

See it if You know the classic Disney princesses and don't mind a hilarious new twist on their stories.

Don't see it if You are more into the "prim and proper" version of these princesses and aren't ready for non-stop laughter.

Critic Reviews (15)

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."

Time Out New York
December 4th, 2014

"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
December 4th, 2014

"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."

Theatermania
December 4th, 2014

"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."

Theatre is Easy
December 24th, 2014

"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."

The Huffington Post
April 7th, 2015

"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."
