In EVER AFTER, Danielle de Barbarac risks everything to save a friend from an unjust fate, and captures the heart and imagination of a country along the way. With the help of none other than Leonardo da Vinci, Danielle must decide not only who she is, but what she'll fight for, and how far she'll go for love.
"The Cinderella myth has always been important and has proven both timeless and timely. Perhaps our favorite thing about this version is that it is empowering - not only because it's a love story, but because its magic is real - made up of real flaws, real losses, choices, vulnerabilities, as well as real beauty and growth," said book writer and lyricist, Marcy Heisler. "At this show's heart, it's the relationships we all observe, enjoy, and foster in each other that create the true fairy tale."
"This is a story I am proud to share with my daughter," said composer Zina Goldrich. "It's the journey of a resourceful woman who, when dealt less-than-optimal circumstances, is able to ignore societal constraints and triumphs because of her strong spirit and warm heart."
"How can you not love a story where the princess saves herself - and the prince and a slew of others," said Director Susan V. Booth. "And instead of a fairy godmother, you get Leonardo da Vinci!"
