Barrington Stage Company
Nominated for Best Family Show (Off Broadway Alliance Award) and named Best Fall Theater Show for NYC Kids (Mommy Poppins), Ragtag Theatre’s "Rapunzel" follows a troupe of poor “Italian” actors as they present a twisted musical romp through the fairy tale Rapunzel with talkin’ birds, an 80s hair stylist, a prince in a giraffe onesie and a cobbler and his wife from the wrong side of the tracks. This drag-infused production is done in the style of Commedia dell’Arte and is highly-interactive — incorporating improvisation and loads of audience participation.
