An off-Broadway hit in New York where it played an astonishingly long run for a children's musical, this show has the double advantage of action enough to excite the children and wit enough to make the occasion pleasant for adults, too. Princess Beauty and her encounter with the Scary Fairy make wonderful theatre, as does her rescue. In the New York production, children couldn't resist screaming out warnings as the princess reached for the poisoned rose.
