    1. I am not a fan. This play is a strange, jerky retelling of some even stranger fairy tales. Unlike "Into the Woods", these fairy tales didn't weave into each other; instead, they each story stopped abruptly, jumped to another story, then returned to conclude the first story. It was morbid, creepy, and disjointed. Some of the stories left me disturbed and way creeped out. I was constantly confused. I'm not sure if this was the intention of the writer or not. It definitely would be interesting to s [...]


    2. Preparing to do this show with our High School Theatre program this coming Fall.As I always do with every play I direct, I am currently transcribing the whole thing as it helps me get to know the material on a much deeper level. Really looking forward to living in this world with students for 6-7 weeks!



    3. If the work of Ingmar Bergman and Phillip Glass had a child I imagine that it would be something like this play. Zimmerman combines seven less-known fairy tales including Beauty and the Beast, The Princess Who Wouldn't Laugh, and The Three Snake Leaves, to tell the story of Heidi, a little girl whose parents are out to dinner and is being babysat by her neighbor, Mr. Fitzpatrick. However, there is something a little unusual about Mr. Fitzpatrick, he is an Ogre, but only Heidi is able to see it.A [...]


    4. I first saw this play when I was a student teacher, and I thought it was absolutely brilliant then. I searched and searched for it online and was never able to find it. Now that I do have it, I'm so glad I do. This play is so fantastic with so many different stories to dive into and so much to say about growing up and about story-telling and about family and about love. I will certainly be reading this one over and over in an attempt to completely understand what Mary Zimmerman is saying in this [...]


    5. This is the first play I ever acted in and I had a blast. The play in itself is very strange and odd, and it took me pretty much up until our final week of rehearsal before I understod everything that was actually going on in the mix of mismatched fairy tales. Talk about anticlimactic plot twist at the end, though.


    6. We are currently doing this play in our theatre group. This is very odd, surreal play. The storyline is confusing and wacky. There are some definite points the playwright wishes to convey, but it takes a moderate amount of dissecting to understand. I'm excited to see how this will look on stage!
