An ambivalent Cinderella. A blood-thirsty Little Red Riding-hood. A Prince Charming with a roving eye and a witch who… raps? They’re all among the cockeyed characters in James Lapine and Stephen Sondheim’s fractured fairy tale. Chocolate Box Theatre revisit and reimagine their sell-out 2012 production in this Emporium co-production.
