If you thought you knew the story of the "The Princess and the Pea," you're in for an eye-opening surprise. The disheveled Princess Winnifred the Woebegone (made famous by Carol Burnett) is not your typical princess and her soon-to-be husband Prince Dauntless the Drab, not your typical prince! His mother, Queen Aggravain, is determined to shut this wedding down while the ladies-in-waiting of the court need the Prince to marry first so they can tie-the-knot. Carried along on a wave of vaudeville turns, sprightly dancing, insinuating jokes and raucous and romantic songs, Once Upon a Mattress provides non-stop, side-splitting shenanigans.
