    Princess Winifred The Woebegone: Sutton Foster Prince Dauntless: Michael Urie


    Music: Mary Rodgers Lyrics: Marshall Barer Book: Jay Thompson, Dean Fuller & Marshall Barer Concert Adaptation by: Amy Sherman-Palladino Director: Lear deBessonet Choreographer: Lorin Latarro Set Designer: David Zinn Costume Designer: Andrea Hood Lighting Designer: Justin Townsend Sound Designer:Kai Harada Music Director: Mary-Mitchell Campbell

    Direct from its record-breaking New York City Center Encores! run and newly adapted by Amy Sherman-Palladino (The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel), this New York Times Critic’s Pick introduces the unapologetically eccentric Winnifred to a repressed kingdom, where she charms, delights, and dances her way to the top… of a stack of mattresses. An uproarious update of Hans Christian Andersen’s “The Princess and the Pea,” Once Upon A Mattress sets an unapologetic free spirit loose in a repressed kingdom, reveling in Winnifred’s ability to charm and transform with willpower, honesty, and a little bit of help from her friends. Full of gloriously catchy melodies like “Shy” and “In a Little While,” the musical first premiered in 1959, with music by Mary Rodgers, lyrics by Marshall Barer, and book by Jay Thompson, Dean Fuller, and Marshall Barer.
