From the creators of the smash hit television series, comes a world-premiere comedy bringing Julia, Suzanne, Mary Jo, and Charlene into our current age. It’s 2020, and the ladies of Sugarbaker’s design firm are as hilarious as ever, responding to their own differences and to the insanity of the world around them. With the same whip-smart, and unmistakably Southern brand of humor, this new play proves that nothing unites us like laughter.
The critically-acclaimed comedy that’s taking the theatre world by storm comes to The Rep
stage. As the reigning queen bee of Ghana’s most exclusive boarding school, Paulina has her
sights on the 1986 Miss Universe pageant. But the arrival of a new transfer student from America
changes the game. This fearless comedy confronts our conceptions of self-esteem and beauty;
“ferociously entertaining, as heartwarming as it is hilarious” (The Hollywood Reporter).
Little Red has strayed far from the path, Jack’s found a 2nd beanstalk, Prince Charming’s
eyes are wandering, and there’s a Witch living next door. Stephen Sondheim’s most popular
musical turns the world of fairy tales topsy-turvy, reminding us that granted wishes
often bring complications. Filled with exquisite music and brilliant lyrics, this innovative
new production is sure to enchant as it ventures beyond “happily ever after”.
