The Commedia Rapunzel
In the timeless Brothers Grimm fairy tale, a long-haired maiden is trapped in a high tower, guarded by an evil witch. When Mother Gothel calls out, “Rapunzel, Rapunzel, let down your hair!” the young lady lowers her seemingly endless locks, allowing the woman to climb up the tower wall and teach her about the world. But when a valiant prince stumbles upon the tower, and Rapunzel lets her hair down for him, the heroine’s real adventure begins.
In The Commedia Rapunzel, both the heroine and the audience embark on an adventure that follows the Grimms’ essential beats, but adds in a whole lot of wackiness. The reason: the Spaghetti and Meatball Players, a troupe that’s pretended to be a poor Italian Commedia dell’arte troupe for so long that their faces froze that way. During their improv-laden all-ages comedy, they weave the traditional tale of Rapunzel with new characters that range from a gossipy hairstylist from the 1980s to two talking birds. And this mad potion has won the critics over. The work was named one of Mommy Poppins’ “Best Fall Theater Shows for NYC Kids” and Time Out New York declared, “you and your little one have never seen a version of Rapunzel quite like this!”
