Is 'Disenchanted' Broadway bound? Catch this must-see musical at the Golden Apple before it goes to the Big Apple
When “Disenchanted” had its full-length, Florida premiere at the Golden Apple Dinner Theatre in October, I called the Disney-dissing musical “a laugh-out-loud joy ride of bouncy melodies goosed with plenty of snark, wit and a cleverly delivered message of female empowerment."
In case you missed it, the show returns to Sarasota for a month-long run on Tuesday (Feb. 28).
That same day, Town Square Productions is offering an invitation to the investment of the off-Broadway production of "Disenchanted."
An informational get-together for potential investors will be held in Orlando, where the musical originated
The event will feature appearances by Don Frantz (executive producer), Laurie Brown (associate producer), Dennis Giacino (author/composer), Fiely Matias (director) "and a few surprise guests."
“We’re so excited we can’t contain ourselves,” Giacino said when I reached him by phone this afternoon at the Town Square Productions office in New York City.
He added, “Golden Apple Dinner Theatre is the last company we will be licensing the show to until further notice as we seek out the off-Broadway production.”
