BWW Previews: DISENCHANTED! at Bootless Stageworks
Bootless Stageworks brings another gem of a show to Wilmington with the Delaware premiere of DISENCHANTED!
Poisoned apples. Glass slippers. Who needs 'em?! Not Snow White and her posse of disenchanted Princesses in the hilarious hit musical that's anything but Grimm. The original fairy tale Princesses are none too happy with the exploitation they've suffered in today's films, books and dolls. Snow White and her angry band of storybook friends are 'storming the castle' in order to take their lives back!
The Princesses who make up the cast of the tawdry and very amusing little PG-13 staged cabaret see the world from a different angle. Take the now-alcoholic Little Mermaid, who sings of her consternation of giving up her tail and voice for some "teen-aged boy, crazed swimmer, with the flirty eyes," or the now off-kilter Belle who is delivered to the stage via mover dolly complete with straight-jacket, singing about talking silverware and picking up her boyfriend's poop.
DISENCHANTED! is best enjoyed by audience members 16 years and older.
