Roundabout Theatre Company presents the acclaimed McCarter and Fiasco Theater production of the musical classic in their signature stripped-down style. More…
Weaving everyone’s favorite fairy tales together, this musical asks: what happens after happily ever after? As the result of the curse of a once-beautiful witch, a baker and his wife are childless. They venture into the forest to find the ingredients that will reverse the spell and restore the witch's beauty. During their journey, they meet Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Rapunzel and Jack, each one on a quest. The acclaimed Fiasco Theater teamed up with McCarter to conjure this fairy tale into being with whimsy, theatrical invention, and only ten actors and a single piano.
