FAIRY TALES, SONGS OF THE DANDELION WOMAN to Run 5/8-16 at Little Stage Theater
by BWW News Desk - Apr 21, 2014

From May 8 through May 16, the Little Stage Theater at SoBe Institute of the Arts becomes the portal to FAIRY TALES, Songs of the Dandelion Woman, a 90-minute music-theater trip 'down the rabbit hole.'

This parallel world, very much like our own as seen through a magnifying glass, is created as the Bank Examiner (Ken Mattice, baritone) and The Dandelion Woman (Megan Brus, soprano) become aware of each other: an authority figure who is charged with determining her competence, and a misfit who moves with angular grace through her own private world, and is charismatic enough to dismantle the system simply by living as she pleases.
