Directed by Fiely A. Matias, Disenchanted! 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. Erin Leigh Peck (Grease), Karen Burthwright (Jesus Christ Superstar) and Anthea Neri (Oliver!) are the understudies.
Here's how the production is billed: "Poisoned apples. Glass slippers. Who needs 'em?! Not Snow White and her posse of disenchanted princesses in the new musical comedy that's anything but Grimm. Forget the princesses you think you know. After multiple sold-out runs nationwide, these royal renegades toss off their tiaras to bring their hilariously subversive, not-for- the-kiddies musical to New York City – and fairy tales will never be the same!"
