Disenchanted!   (Closed)

November 14 -24, 2019

Jaeb Theater @ the Straz Center  | $37.50

Poisoned apples.  Glass slippers. Who needs ‘em?!  Welcome to the kingdom of ‘DISENCHANTED!’ princesses. These wonderfully empowered and funny women have come together in a vaudeville-variety show to tell the truth about living happily ever after. Together, with the brassy and all-powerful Snow White at the lead, this band of royal renegades storm the proverbial castle, all the while hilariously poking holes in the age-old tenets of The Princess Complex.  Forget the princesses you think you know – the original storybook heroines have come to life to set the record straight.

Not for the kiddies, folks!

The director, Michelle Knight, starred as the original Snow White in the off-Broadway and Jaeb Theater productions!
