If you thought you knew the story of The Princess and the Pea, you may be in for a big sur­prise! Did you know, for in­stance, that Princess Win­nifred ac­tu­ally swam the moat to reach Prince Daunt­less the Drab? Or that Lady Larken’s love for Sir Harry pro­vided a rather com­pelling rea­son that she reach the bridal al­tar in a hurry? Or that, in fact, it wasn’t the pea at all that caused the princess a sleep­less night? With won­der­ful songs, hi­lar­i­ous com­edy and ro­mance, this rol­lick­ing spin on the fa­mil­iar clas­sic of royal courtship pro­vides for some side split­ting hu­mor. Chances are you’ll never look at fairy tales quite the same way again.
