Lee is known for her adults-only parodies of popular songs, while Hugg is a Chicago stand-up comic who's performed at Zanies and elsewhere. Learn More

This show is a little hard to rate. I thought the performers were extremely talented! The stage, props, theatre set-up were all very well done (especially for a small theatre company). Did I love it? No. Through what I assume was no fault of the performers / producers / directors, the story, although cute, felt so much longer than it needed to be, in my opinion. The entire things lasted close to 3 hours (including the 15 minute intermission) and seemed to drag at the end. Those 3 hours were literally more painful as the seats in the theatre are folding chairs. I feel bad to take anything away from the performers, etc but I probably won't tell a pal to go see this show.
When a Baker and his Wife learn the Witch next door has cursed them with childlessness, they embark on a quest to break the spell. Along the way, they swindle, lie, and steal from Cinderella, Little Red, Rapunzel, and Jack of beanstalk fame. Masks and puppets creatively convey the storybook sense of wonder and fear in this modern morality tale. The bewitchingly beautiful Sondheim score features the well-known songs “Children Will Listen” and “No One is Alone.”
