This musical debuted in San Diego at the Old Globe Theatre in 1986 and premiered on Broadway on November 5, 1987, where it won several Tony Awards, including Best Score, Best Book, and Best Actress in a Musical.
Performed by arrangement with Music Theatre International (Europe) Limited.
Comically dark masterpiece of a musical where well known fairy tales interweave to create a magical world which suddenly turns upside down revealing the 'Grimm' darkness of these traditional stories.
Beware of what you wish for ...
Performed in the round, you will feel that you too are in the middle of the forest with an ensemble of 17 larger than life characters drawn from modern day Britain, complete with a cocaine-snorting Rapunzel, a paedophile Wolf and an evil stepmother straight from Towie.
