The new musical comedy DISENCHANTED! will make its New York premiere in a limited 9-week engagement at Theatre at St. Clement’s (423 West 46th St. at 9th Avenue) beginning previews on Wednesday, November 26, 2014.
Opening night is set for Thursday, December 4, 2014. With book, music and lyrics by Dennis T. Giacino, DISENCHANTED! is directed by Fiely A. Matias and features musical staging by Matt West (Lestat). The company met the press earlier this week and you can check out interviews with the cast and a performance sneak peek below! Poisoned apples. Glass slippers. Who needs ’em?! Not Snow White and her posse of disenchanted princesses in the new musical comedy that’s anything but Grimm. Forget the princesses you think you know. After multiple sold-out runs nationwide, these royal renegades toss off their tiaras to bring their hilariously subversive, not-for-the-kiddies musical to New York City – and fairy tales will never be the same! The “princess posse” will be comprised of original cast member Michelle Knight (Jersey Boys) as Snow White; Becky Gulsvig (Legally Blonde) as Cinderella; Jen Bechter (Elf 1st Nat’l Tour) as Sleeping Beauty; original cast member Lulu Picart (David Friedman’s Listen To My Heart) as Hua Mulan/Pocahontas/Princess Badroulbadour; Alison Burns (RENT Nat’l Tour) as Belle/The Little Mermaid/Rapunzel; and Soara-Joye Ross (LES MISERABLES 2006 Broadway revival) as The Princess Who Kissed the Frog
. Erin Leigh Peck (Grease) and Karen Burthwright (Jesus Christ Superstar 2012 Broadway revival) are the understudies.
