It's a long show, grab a drink and bite beforehand at Pops or Beehive.

In whatever you want, but know there's something classy about getting dressed up for live theater.

Be sure to grab a slice or two of pizza at Emilios across the street! Cheesy and not a lot of sauce.

A diverse group of local playwrights provide a modern spin on some of the Grimm Fairy Tales.

Need to see twice to appreciate. Not that funny or dramatic. But definitely thought provoking. Great acting and set.

Acting was superb. The writing, too. Very interesting and provocative perspectives on the Grimm stories. Most of the plays included strong themes about race and racism, power in sexual relationships, ugly Americans. Great surprises.
