About this show

This unique production of The Brothers Grimm fairytale requires that the entire New Victory be transformed from basement to balcony to accommodate the complex and intricate needs of a "promenade" theater piece. Audiences follow the path of Hansel and Gretel as the pair journeys from their kitschy 1970s inspired home through a spooky forest and into the dangerous clutches of a bald-headed witch who is at once nasty, funny and completely off-her-rocker. Hansel and Gretel features live music, and for a little nostalgia and camp, some Bay City Rollers' tunes in the soundtrack. Described as "a world of dark absurdity that Tim Burton would be proud of (Edinburghguide.com)," Hansel and Gretel is based on an original work by the National Theatre of Scotland (Black Watch).
