By some strange coincidence, the most recent plays I've been moved by lately have been "fairy tale" sorts of stories:
1) my friends at Dream are doing part 2 of their Peter Pan trilogy, by Jeremy Menekseoglu.
2) I was into Into The Woods, by Sondheim and Lapine. I was playing Cinderella's father.
3) My friend, Jordan Leigh Wakefield, played the prince in The Fantasists, by Randy Wyatt, a clever children's story featuring a quest to save a kingdom from an ill-intentioned ice witch.
I have seen nary a fairy,
but their tales rarely fail.
