Disappointing, Overrated, Entertaining

See it if You’d like to see a modern version of the story. I’ve seeb show with 3 kids and some references were confusing & not child appropriate

Don't see it if You are not a big fan of intimate theater with no props, mediocre acting, modern adaptation of a classic story Read more

November 10th, 2018

“The show seems to revolve less around the characters of Hansel and Gretel, and more around their evil stepmother, who is a Latina woman...It seems to perpetrate some of the worst stereotypes surrounding the Hispanic community – particularly Hispanic women...Then, there’s the rest of the show, which is mediocre at best...In an adaptation where a large chunk of the 'humor' is reliant on a racially insensitive stereotype, performances alone are not enough to save the production.”
