Once Upon a Mattress - 2015 - Off-Broadway Tickets, News, Info & More

This revival of the raucous musical fairy tale Once Upon A Mattress will star the formidable Jackie Hoffman (On the Town, Xanadu, Hairspray) and the iconic John "Lypsinka" Epperson (Lypsinka's The Boxed Set, The Passion of the Crawford). During a kingdom-wide search to find a princess fit for the hapless Prince Dauntless, in swims the less-than-regal Princess Winnifred the Woebegone (Hoffman). Unrefined and undeniably charming, Winnifred is like no princess Dauntless has ever seen and his heart is captured. The truly terrible Queen Aggravain (Lypsinka) goes on a mission to come between her son and his soulmate in this retelling of the classic story of "The Princess and the Pea." This is a Happily-Ever-After unlike any other!
