News   Original Princess Posse of Disenchanted! to Transfer for Open-Ended Run Off-Broadway
 
Producers have announced that the original cast of the musical Disenchanted! will continue for the open-ended run Off-Broadway beginning in March. As previously reported, the show is transferring following a sold-out, nine-week engagement.

The cast features Michelle Knight (Jersey Boys) as Snow White; Becky Gulsvig (Legally Blonde) as Cinderella; Jen Bechter (Elf) as Sleeping Beauty; Lulu Picart (Listen To My Heart) as Hua Mulan/Pocahontas/Princess Badroulbadour; Alison Burns (Rent) as Belle/The Little Mermaid/Rapunzel; and Soara-Joye Ross (Les Misérables) as The Princess Who Kissed the Frog.

Performances will begin March 19 with an official opening night set for April 7 at the Westside Theatre.

Disenchanted! has received critical praise since opening Off-Broadway at Theatre st. Clement's in 2014. The show features book, music and lyrics by Dennis T. Giacino, direction by Fiely A Matias and musical staging by Matt West (Sleeping Beauty).

Produced by Don Frantz (Beauty and the Beast) and Jonathan Pollard (I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change), the musical comedy presents a different perspective on the fairy tale princesses we thought we knew all too well. According to press notes, “The original storybook heroines have come back to life to set the record straight. After multiple sold-out runs nationwide, these royal renegades tosses off their tiaras to bring their hilariously subversive, not-for-the-kiddies musical to New York City.”

Following successful runs around the country, Jan. 25 marked the final performance of the original limited Off-Broadway engagement of Disenchanted! at Theatre at St. Clement’s prior to re-opening at Westside Theatre. Producers are also preparing for international productions in 2015, with Latin America and China slated to stage the show. Tickets are now available online by visiting Telecharge.com or calling (212) 239 6200 and via disenchantedmusical.com. Westside Theatre Upstairs is located at 407 West 43rd St., New York.
