FRANCE:  "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!"

MUSICAL AVENUE - PARIS, FRANCE

(Licensed - Something Musical)

FRANCE:  "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 cliches which gangrene our society.  THEY: DISENCHANTED!       WE: DELIGHTED!"

Around the USA

ALASKA:  "HILARIOUS The show is a musical comedy about storybook princesses, but inside that there are strong messages that resonate deeply.  Racism, patriarchy, even horizontal violence amongst women are all touched on.  Parents may be wise to attend and then take the messages home to their children to start a dialogue.  Life isn't always a fairytale, you can't wait for a prince on a white horse, but with the right friends and attitude you can find some happy in your ever after!  EXCELLENT!"

COLORADO:  "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!"
