What I liked
What I didn't like
Mitch Rosander’s play sets up scenes with much potential but it occasionally can’t deliver on the mayhem and hilarity that’s needed. A touch more campiness to the proceedings might’ve covered it up.
My overall impression
It is a tribute to the inexhaustible talents of the Loft Ensemble that they’re able to dive deep into the choked and polluted waters of fairy tale parodies, take an okay script and spin it all up into an enjoyable evening. Very strong ensemble work with many notable performances, including Bree Pavey as a minstrel of ceremonies, Tor Brown as a comfortably self-centered prince, April Morrow as a screechy peasant and a party-girl princess, and Cameron Britton as a servant and stage hand who’s challenged in more than a few ways, all of them riotously funny.
