Disenchanted!

 

Review


In a time when studios are saying that they can’t find anyone qualified to play Jasmine in the live action movie version of Aladdin, it’s a relief to see a musical that contains a wide variety of ethnic diversity in this all female cast. Snow White was Asian, which I loved. Why couldn’t she be Asian? All of these women could sing, and it was clear that they were having a good time making fun of Disney princesses, and Hollywood’s tired tropes. This play is feminist, funny and the cast could all act and dance too. I wasn’t the only one laughing when Sleeping Beauty was referred to as “Princess Ambien.” Or when Mulan admitted that she might actually be gay. I’d like to recommend this play to any parent of a toddler who is obsessed with princesses, or who is sick of plays with no female roles. While watching this play, I found myself nodding several times. One song, called “All I Wanna Do Is Eat,” talked about how hard it is for princesses to resist food, and received lots of laughs from the well-packed room. I look forward to seeing all of these talented actresses in the future. More, please! Reviewed by Alexis Kienlen.

    This show was one of the best Fringe shows I’ve seen. The crowd roared throughout. The singers were top-notch. It’s the story of the original princesses that were co-opted into Disney movies…and they’re pretty pissed about it. Hilarious!
