Co- Producer Deaf West Described It In An Interesting Narration Given Below:
“After sleeping for centuries, Sleeping Beauty wakes up in a sleep-disorder center which is far away from her fairy tale kingdom, where all the princes seem to have disappeared. There is a sweet twist on Grimms’ classic fairy tale. It takes us along with its an enchanting theatrical journey in these two parallel stories where Beauty realizes the risk and consequences of flirting with danger, the true joy of leading a happy life and the importance of true love.”
The production – 2007 Theatre LA Ovation Award for Best Musical
Milburn – Won for Best Musical Direction.
