The upcoming Transport Group revival of Once Upon a Mattress features John "Lypsinka" Epperson (My Deah, The Passion of the Crawford) as Queen Aggravain and Jessica Fontana (Cinderella) as Lady Larken as well as Broadway's Jackie Hoffman (On the Town) in the role of Princess Winnifred. Watch Hoffman take on the less-than-regal role in the rehearsal footage below.

Directed by Jack Cummings III, Once Upon a Mattress will run from November 29-January 3 at Abrons Arts Center. The musical features music by Mary Rodgers, lyrics by Marshall Barer, and a book by Jay Thompson, Marshall Barer, and Dean Fuller. Inspired by the fairy tale "The Princess and the Pea," the show follows Princess Winnifred the Woebegone, who arrives on the scene to win the hapless heart of Prince Dauntless.
