The famed story of the princess and the pea comes to life on stage in the delightful musical Once Upon a Mattress. No one in the kingdom is permitted to marry until Prince Dauntless does -- but when a suitable candidate finally arrives, his overprotective mother concocts a secret test that the young princess must pass before she'll allow them to wed. Of course, it's hard to prepare when sleep is in such short supply, even on a stack of 20 mattresses. Will Princess Winnifred, the latest candidate, fall prey to Queen Aggravain's schemes, or will she prove more clever? Carried on a wave of wonderful songs, this rollicking spin on the familiar classic of royal courtship and comeuppance features a score by Mary Rodgers, and was nominated for the Tony Award for Best Musical in 1960.

Quotes & Highlights
“[A] wonderful drama that elegantly describes the world of mathematics, and suggests how ill-suited the mathematical notion of truth is for life.” -Chronicle of Higher Education
“Without any baffling erudition - if you know what a prime number is, there won’t be a single line of dialogue you find perplexing — the play presents mathematicians as both blessed and bedeviled by the gift for abstraction that ties them achingly to one another and separates them, also achingly, from concrete-minded folks like you and me." —New York Times
