Pleasant, Wry And Cheerful
Theatre: ‘Once Upon a Mattress’
The year is 1428 and no one in court may marry until Prince Dauntless does. And since his mother, Queen Aggravain, nixes every prospective bride with impossible-to-answer quizzes, wedded bliss has ground to a halt (although other aspects of a happy union appear to thrive).
From here, “Once Upon A Mattress” — a leisurely song-and-dance-version of Hans Christian Andersen’s “The Princess and the Pea” — spins out pleasantly, and sometimes wryly, at The Ghent Playhouse.
