About the Play

This immersive musical spectacle propels audiences back into the joyful and carefree days of childhood. While audiences watch their most beloved tales go to new extremes they can leave "happily ever after" at the door and say hello to uproarious musical numbers, confetti canons, fairies in drag, magic, out of this world circus tricks, often inappropriate humor, and some good old fashioned catharsis.

"With this production I harken back to what folks must have felt like when they saw Steppenwolf or Lookingglass for the first time," Ernie Nolan, Emerald City's Artistic Director, says, "Something that is so unique and so intrinsically Chicago. Fairytales has all the things I love when I go to the theater: laughs, entertainment value, but I also think of an amazing amount of heart and that's what Fairytales really leaves you with at the end."

Due to some adult content and humor, Fairytales: Not Suitable for Children is, in fact, not recommended for children.
