Fairytales, just not like Granny told you....
The classic sounds of the Weimar republic are weaved into a joyous, creepy and bizarre world courtesy of Hans Christian Andersen and the Brothers Grimm. This show takes the fairytales we know and love, turns each story on its head and dares to explore a final chapter that doesn’t end in ‘happily ever after’. Through the music of Weill, Bowie, Waits and more, Babushka gives Rapunzel a sharp new haircut, puts Goldilocks in charge of the three bears and gives a whole new meaning to Puss in Boots.
Happily Ever After is touring Queensland in 2018.
