RAVE REVIEW - CBS DENVER
"A musical-comedy satire that turns fairytales upside down ... with bite and hilarity! And it is funny!  A ribald, raucous ride ... you really must see!"

RAVE REVIEW - BOULDER WEEKLY

"Rambunctious Grrrrr-power comedy!  It piles laugh upon bawdy laugh! 'Disenchanted!' is positively enchanting!  It's no wonder there wasn't an empty seat in the house!  Disenchanted! delivers!"

RAVE REVIEW - WESTWORLD BOULDER

"'Disenchanted!' is very much relevant!  Satirizes the cultural assumptions, historical distortions, and masculine obtuseness behind the perfect Disney princess image.    Disenchanted! is delightful ... casts a spell!  Witty ... very funny!"

RAVE REVIEW - ONSTAGE COLORADO

"Irreverent ... tongue-in-cheek!  Stellar and energized! Fun and entertaining!"

RAVE REVIEW - BOULDER DAILY CAMERA/STOCK DAILY DISH

"An unflinching, warped, and consistently funny view of what becomes the standard for fairytale endings for Western culture in the 21st century. Serious questions about impossible beauty standards, cultural appropriation, sexism, and racism arise through the fairly rapid rotation of tunes and skits. But these legitimate questions never weigh down the inherent comedy, charm, and light-heartedness of the piece. A message of self-acceptance that's powerful in its simplicity and universality!"

RAVE REVIEW - PATRICKDORN.COM COLORADO

"The funniest and most tuneful all-women musical revue since the Nunsense franchise!  Disenchanted! pokes fun at, yet empowers everyone's inner princess!  Dennis T. Giacino uses surprise, wit, and guilty pleasures galore to make the show as entertaining as it is!  Clever!"

RAVE REVIEW - BROADWAY WORLD, TAMPA

"A hilarious campy musical spoof!  Laughed out loud, whistled, and cheered from the moment the show began.  This musical spoof/satire does have an underlying message and that is what makes it all the more wonderful and appealing to me.  It's about acceptance and being confident in who you are as a person.  Thank you Dennis T. Giacino.  I will see this one again and again!  I had to wipe tears of laughter from my eyes.  This is a hit!"

RAVE REVIEW - CHICAGO TRIBUNE

"Very amusing!  Hilarious - this one is very funny!  The tunes are peppy and the lyrics are exceptionally witty - comparable really to the best of Forbidden Broadway!"

RAVE REVIEW - CHICAGOLAND MUSICAL THEATRE

"A satirical side-splitting spin on the stereotypical sing-song Disney musical!  Has the irreverence of Spamalot and Shrek!  A true delight!"

RAVE REVIEW - DAILY HERALD

"Disenchanted! deliciously disses princesses in sketches, songs!  A distillation of cultural criticism lobbed at Disney's animated film princesses.  Disenchanted! shows how funny raw feminism can be via smart songs and naughty comedy sketches.  Written and composed by Dennis T. Giacino, the show becomes a proud example that men can also be feminists!  Giacino is on-target in musicalizing gripes against Disney by the likes of overly analytical academics to parents annoyed by too much princess merchandise filling their homes.  By bringing up topics involving body image and other issues tied to 'the princess complex,' the show could kick-start a dialogue between parents and teens."

"Disenchanted! is "Picture perfect!  Spectacular!  The ensemble numbers are quite funny!  It's really funny!  There are plenty of places where you'll go, "Yeah, they're right about that, aren't they?"  The individual women's songs are really rather poignant.  It's a fun evening or afternoon out!"

"Witty and bitingly satirical!  Bold, smart, and a lot of raucous fun!"

RAVE REVIEW - TWIN CITIES DAILY PLANET

"This brainchild of composer-playwright Dennis Giacino has a smart premise, a flair for bitingly funny satire, and the all-important timing of its comedy down pat!  Well-honed dialogue, amusing song lyrics, and a bit of old-fashioned vaudeville mix onstage into a cocktail of laughter in the seats!"

RAVE REVIEW - AISLE SAY

"Artfully blends clever wit, slapstick, sarcasm, innuendo, and downright silliness to create a show that is constantly entertaining!  Highly entertaining and laugh-inducing!"

RAVE REVIEW - BROADWAYWORLD MINNESOTA

"The salty, sassy princesses of Disenchanted! are smart, strong, and unwilling to put up with crap from anyone!  These are the kind of princesses that little (and not so little) girls should emulate!  A super fun show for anyone who loves and/or hates Disney princesses!  Featuring catchy and melodic tunes, clever and funny lyrics!  It's a really fun and fantastic 90 minutes!"

RAVE REVIEW - HOW WAS THE SHOW, MINNEAPOLIS

"Exuberant, campy, and fiercely funny!  Dennis T. Giacino offers up a slate of expertly crafted and energized songs!"

RAVE REVIEW - PIONEER PRESS

"It's a delight!  Dennis Giacino's songs ably ape both the soaring ballads that earn Disney a best song Oscar nomination virtually every year and non-princess show tunes such as 'Mein Herr' of Cabaret .. songs that decry racism (Finally), ignorance of history (Honestly), literary license (Not Vone Red Cent), objectification (All I Wanna Do Is Eat), and of course sexism.  Once upon a good time ... a happy 90 minutes!"

RAVE REVIEW - PLAYBACK, STL

"Dennis T. Giacino was definitely on his A-Game when he created the book, music, and lyrics for Disenchanted!  You should definitely plan to see this show twice so that you can catch every bit of Giacino's brilliance!"

RAVE REVIEW - REVIEWS STL

"The songs are so much fun!  Disenchanted! has a clever book and lyrics ... a strong message at a very important time in our society.  The musical handles it perfectly through humor and catchy songs!  It's simply empowering!"

RAVE REVIEW - KDHX RADIO

"Fast-paced, funny, and fiercely feminine!  The show is filled with clever lyrics and twisted humor ... as hilarious as it is informative!  The lyrics humorously point out the generalizations and unrealistic expectations the movies have encouraged over the years.  A surprisingly uplifting and emotionally empowering tribute to women of all shapes, sizes, and cultures!  A delightfully upbeat girl power musical!"

RAVE REVIEW - LADUE NEWS

"A crowd-pleaser!  Giacino lyrics are focused on the humor of the situation yet also point out the male-oriented traditions that kept these young women in their 'places.'  An evening of laughter!  Standing ovation!"

"The message here is simple: Stop waiting for your storybook prince to come along, and take charge of your own happiness.  In Disenchanted!, each young woman transcends mockery to free the girl inside!  A surprisingly nice little show!"

"If you're looking for something to counterbalance all those Hallmark Channel movies and traditional shows, this acerbically funny musical is more spice than sugar, which just may be the cure for too many holiday sweets!"

"One of the funniest shows I've ever seen!  It isn't often that you wish a show would go on and on, but this was one of those times!  Every tune in this finely tuned show is a gem, a surprise package wrapped up in Dennis T. Giacino's clever book, music, and lyrics!"

RAVE REVIEW - SHEPHERD EXPRESS

"The show sets itself apart thanks to the quality of its writing and its high production value!  Disenchanted! does touch on real issues.  The humor is spot on!  While the musical lasts two hours, you'll be craving more by the time it comes to an end!"

RAVE REVIEW - THEATRE BATH (2017)
"The songs are hilarious from start to finish!  Exceptional ... fantastic!  This is a superbly polished high energy show!  The brothers may be Grimm, but these sisters definitely ain't!  A fabulous ferrago of fantastically funny fine-tuned feminist fun!  A 5 Star show!  Unmissable!"

RAVE REVIEW - BATH ECHO

"It is a pleasure to watch a show that takes the form of a revue and know that each cast member can deliver a song with passion, power, and competence!  An excellent night out that will make you leave the theatre with a smile!"

RAVE REVIEW - THEATRE BATH (2018)

"Hugely successful and entertaining!  Hard to imagine anyone not leaving with a huge smile on their face!  This adult only romp through the various possibilities is a great treat!  There is much to enjoy here!  Purely one of enjoyment and escapism!"

RAVE REVIEW - MUSICAL AVENUE - PARIS
"A playful score that is not unlike those of Alan Menken! Hilarious show - laughter and strong messages!  Dennis T. Giacino has written a work full of humor!  This humor and cartoon princesses allow him to address a lot of topics:  racism, homophobia, misogyny, the dictates of Western beauty, or the most insulting tendency of Disney to Americanize everything.  A musical that is as funny as it is original!  Enchanting!"

RAVE REVIEW - TOI, TOI, TOI - PARIS

"A magnificent success!  Off-beat, hilarious, subversive!  The goal is much deeper than just laughing shockingly:  it allows above all to denounce the sexist, racist, homophobic clichés which gangrene our society."

"A unique and unmissable show!  The funniest show of the season!"

RAVE REVIEW - MEDIA & SIPARIO - ROME

"Amazing!  A funny show!  Leaves the public with food for thought about the world of women.  Warning:  Once you get the song 'Perfect' in your head, it's difficult to forget!  (It) is the manifesto of the beauty of every woman who enjoys the acceptance of herself ... the importance of uniqueness!"

RAVE REVIEW - VOGLIOTORNABAMBINO - ROME

"I swear to you that I have never laughed so much in my life!  It's a new, fresh, funny, hilarious musical!  It is difficult to leave the theater without whistling!  Recommended?  Yes!"

RAVE REVIEW - M! MAGAZINE - ITALY

"Disincantate! (Disenchanted!) is the brilliant, hilarious musical that tells the true story of the most beloved princesses after the 'and they all lived happily ever after'!  The effect that I hope this musical from i perFORMErs will have is that we can see more and more brilliant and well-made titles like this one!  Catchy songs on first listen, lightning beats, a message that is worth subscribing as it speaks of self-acceptance, of how to fight gender stereotypes and those misleading messages for girls that certain fairy tales bring with them ... this is the right way to make good theater!  The usual final question we ask ourselves is "Would you take a taxi to see it?"  My answer is an enthusiastic yes!"

RAVE REVIEW - XS ENTERTAINMENT - NOOSA, QLD
"A superbly sassy, witty, fast-paced and unapologetic political and social statement about everything that’s better than being a storybook princess!  Off-Broadway style big belt voices, beautiful close harmonies, cute and silly contemporary choreography, sexy costumes and loads of sass make this politically correct call to arms a delightful surprise!

Even in this enlightened age it seems that it still takes both guts and grace to stand up and proclaim that we don’t need a guy, or that we actually need to eat. And all of this, taken up and written down by a guyPraise be.  Disney purists will laugh along with these talented girls right from the opening number, One More Happ’ly Ever After, dripping with sarcasm and brimming with righteous anger, to A Happy Tune, which clarifies the issue of domestic duties and the mental load with the hilarious and well timed help of triangle, kazoo and the sweetest smiles, to the sad-but-true and very funny All I Wanna Do Is Eat.

You’ll surely feel compelled to cheer and shout for the rights of princesses everywhere - NOOSA Alive! audiences eat it up!  You'll love it!"

RAVE REVIEW - THEATRE PRESS - MELBOURNE, VIC

"The show's a hoot!  It's not the fairy tale we know but it's very much the modern take on these fairy tale classics that we need to hear!  Disenchanted! was an Off-Broadway hit and it's not hard to see why!"

RAVE REVIEW - LILITHIA REVIEWS - MELBOURNE, VIC

"Absolutely hilarious.  The show is fun, entertaining, and I highly recommend checking it out!"

RAVE REVIEW - WEEKEND NOTES

"Take your daughters.  Take your sons.  Whoop and holler and then tell everyone about it!  A brilliant message!  This is Perth's great talent slamming home a brilliant message - tight, funny, deliciously acted, and smashingly sung - 5 APPLES!  None of them poisoned!"

RAVE REVIEW - ARTSHUB
"Disenchanted! is to Disney fans what Spinal Tap is to rock fans!  Feminism at its finest!  It's cray-cray fun and downright clever!  You are going to fall in love with this show!  4.5 out of 5 STARS!"

Grey 10_edited.jpg

RAVE REVIEW - THEATRE TRAVELS

"A woke assessment of the problematic aspects of cliché fairy tales - defying expectations and subversing societal norms!  It felt human, enchanting the audience with endearing authenticity!  It's simultaneously hilarious and very, very impressive!  It felt like the room erupted into laughter several times a minute.  An unapologetic, sassy and incredibly relevant musical with a stellar cast that had the audience at the Maj both in awe and in stitches. A delightfully irreverent update on the princess stories we know so well!"

RAVE REVIEW - ISOLATED NATION

"5 out of 5 STARS!  A hilariously fiery, feminist denunciation of the classic Disney princess stories that we all grew up watching!  Hilarious and refreshing!  A wonderfully entertaining show!  Side-splitting!  The princesses comically call out issues relating to feminism, racism and Americanisation – to name a mere few – which keep the audience captivated and choking with laughter!

This show resolutely rejects the notion that domestication, marriage and beauty are the gauges by which a woman’s success is to be measured and unapologetically stands up to other questionable qualities of Disney’s film portrayals of these classic fairy-tales. Through admirable assertiveness and self-confidence, these kick-ass princesses ensure that these misguided notions are, and ought to remain, merely “once upon a time.”  I highly recommend catching this side-splitting performance!"

RAVE REVIEW - PERTH HAPPENINGS

"5 STARS!  A hysterical and sassy take on the storybook princesses!  Entertainment at its absolute best!"

RAVE REVIEW - THE FOURTH WALL

"Do not miss this down-with-Disney-Diva posse’s incredible break of the glass ceiling as they hit every note with perfection! Disenchanted! is an honest, bawdy, balls-out demonstration of the negative pitfalls that come from merely thinking positively!  Do not miss this hilarious look and fun poke at the stupidity of all of those once sought after scenarios.  Spend the night watching the damsels rescue themselves in Disenchanted!"

RAVE REVIEW - SUBIACO POST - TIME OUT

"I confess I was not looking forward to an evening of feminist rants against princes (not that they don't deserve it) but Dennis T. Giacino's adult musical comedy is better and smarter than that!  It is more about how Disney stripped them of their origin stories to portray them as pretty, mindless, big-titted male fantasies.  Each princess has her moment to shine!  They are all fabulous and all display a fine sense of comic timing!  Don't miss it!"

RAVE REVIEW - NELSON WEEKLY

"Disenchanted! is a wonderful musical, bringing to life 10 stories about what the princesses really want – not what Walt Disney prescribes!  It’s barrel full of laughs -this is one play I thoroughly recommend seeing!"

RAVE REVIEW - HOROWHENUA CHRONICLE

"Princesses get real in Disenchanted! - cuts straight to the core of the truth and exposes the true reality of our beloved Disney princesses.  Had the audience in stitches!  A humorous take on the fairy tale princesses!  A risque giggle!"
