‘Once upon a time, in a very prosperous, peaceful and rich kingdom, four beautiful princesses lived in big castles married to their handsome princes. Some fifteen years after their supposed “happily ever after”, the four princesses who married for love, now find themselves only four Desperate Princesses.’
So goes the premise of this hilarious comedic stage adventure, featuring four well-known Disney Princesses; Snow White, Cinderella, Belle and Sleeping Beauty, who band together and commiserate over cocktails about their dilemmas, after their fairytale love lives have fizzled. What happens next is a fast-paced comedy full of witty one-liners and juicy gossip, where dramatic secrets and broken dreams are revealed.
Inspired in part by the popular television series of US origin, Desperate Housewives, and a huge success locally, selling out at The Palm last season and Teatro Vallarta last November, it was written for the stage in 2007 by Mexican playwright Tomás Urtusástegui. Directed by Ramiro Daniel, the play stars Cesar Daniel Bravo Ramirez, of the critically acclaimed 2015 local production of Equus. Also starring Juan Carlos Ramirez, Juan Pablo Hernandez Salcedo, and Cesar Trujillo. Now in its third successful year, audiences are still clamoring for more, but according to producer Alain Perreault, this is the very last time to see the Princesses on stage. Last year, each performance of the Spanish version sold out, so best to reserve early.
