FARCE. The laughs never end in this outlandish version of “Sleeping Beauty.” After a magical talking frog promises the childless King and Queen a daughter, the couple hosts a baby shower and invites everyone in the kingdom except for an old fairy, who everyone thought was either retired or dead. Angry she wasn’t invited, the old fairy places a curse on the Princess in which she will prick her finger and fall over dead at the age of 15. Trying to “help,” a not-so-bright fairy reverses the curse by proclaiming that the Princess will prick her finger and fall into a deep sleep for 100 years until she is awakened by a prince. (Why 100 years and not one year? Oops!) Luckily, 100 years later, a prince hunting for unicorns arrives and awakens the Princess, and the whole kingdom parties like it’s 1699!
