|Happily After Tonight -- World Premiere Play
| Open: 07/19/12 Close: 07/28/12
Happily After Tonight is set in a world, not unlike our own, except in this world, their celebrities aren't Brad and Angelina. They're fairy tale characters. When the story opens, it's been 10 years since the Wolf attacked Red Riding Hood, and things have changed quite a bit. Red owns a bar where her sister Alice, a constant tabloid fixture due to her partying, sometimes works. Aurora, the famous Sleeping Beauty, has just woken up, and paparazzi are following her everywhere. But, all is not well. Someone is killing off one fairy tale character at a time. Happily After Tonight is a tongue-in-cheek send-up of maddening celebrity culture.
