Culver City, California's Lythgoe Family Productions presents Princess and Pirates Sing-A-Long Concert weekends only at the Kirk Douglas Theatre July 18-August 10. The production features modernized versions of the classic Grimm fairytales, replete with pop songs for the kids and topical scripts for parents.
The concert is directed and choreographed by Spencer Liff ("So You Think You Can Dance", Hedwig and the Angry Inch) with musical direction by Michael Orland (American Idol). According to press notes, the piece is "based on the Grimm fairytales and others, each story has been modernized with topical scripts for parents and well known pop songs for kids. The Lythgoes pride themselves on creating a memorable experience families can share together. The show includes the family musical interactive fun that LFP is known for, with beloved fairytale characters singing well known pop songs; from Snow White singing Katy Perry’s “Firework,” to Aladdin singing One Direction’s “That’s What Makes You Beautiful,” and the Sheriff of Nottingham’s own rendition of Lady Gaga’s “Applause.” Everyone will be singing along and dancing in the aisles! So come cheer your favorite Princess and Boo! Captain Hook as he tries to spoil the fun."
Deaf West’s production of SPRING AWAKENING floored the critics when it premiered in California, prompting the Los Angeles Times to write, "It's hard to enumerate all the ways in which Deaf West's SPRING AWAKENING is so very, very good." Now this unapologetically brilliant new production is coming to New York.
