“Happily ever after” is just the beginning (but far from the end!) as everyone’s favorite storybook characters are thrown together to overcome obstacles and ultimately forced to discover the true cost of having wishes come true, in this Tony Award-winning dark musical comedy fantasy.
A childless baker and his wife, cursed by the witch next door, are given the chance to overturn their fates and set off on a journey to break the spell. Over three days and three nights, they find themselves encountering the likes of Cinderella, Jack, Little Red Riding Hood, and Rapunzel, in a frantic search to find the items they need . . . but the consequences of their actions return to haunt them later with disastrous results, in this timeless yet relevant piece.

" . . . you would not believe how great these actors are, and they're doing it for free. It's just like you're at a Broadway musical . . . they are amazing people who are incredibly gifted, [who] can make you tear up, make you laugh. Just outstanding."
