BDT STAGE: July 2020
Due to the social distancing caused by this pandemic, live theatre has been sadly missing from our lives.
Now, however, BDT Stage producer Michael J. Duran is reimagining it, so that we can all access it right in our own living rooms.
Starting on July 1, and running at least through the end of the month-we hope it will extend!- Duran has created a wonderful online streaming event with his production of DISENCHANTED, the hilarious send-up of the Disney princesses’ lives after their princes have come.
The royal honeymoons are over and this reality therapy look at life in the aftermath is not looking very much like “happily ever after.”
The bevy of beauties portraying these famous and very funny animated Disney princesses are Jessica Hindsley (Snow White), Tracy Warren (Cinderella), Annie Dwyer (Sleeping Beauty) and Maryjune Scott as Pocahontas/Mulan/Jasmine. Anna High plays the Princess who Kissed the Frog and Alicia K. Meyers is Belle from Beauty and the Beast and Ariel(The Little Mermaid.) Meyers also co-directs and co-choreographs the proceedings with Denver/Boulder favorite Matthew Peters.
Linda Morken delivers the eye-popping costumes and Amy Campion’s scenic design is one for the (story)books. (sorry.)
Neal Dunfee’s music direction and conducting of the just off and above stage, BDT Stage band (he also plays keys) with Jon Stubbs on bass and Nick Gnojek on drums, is Amazing!
The book,music and lyrics penned by Dennis J. Giacino, made the show a big hit off Broadway. DISENCHANTED was nominated for the 2015 Outer Critics Award for Outstanding Off Broadway Musical as well as receiving the 2015 Broadway Alliance Award for Best New Musical.
Put the kids to bed early, because this is a more adult type of look at Disney's princesses.
