We were happy to learn of the opening of The Princess of Bedlam, a production of Art House Astoria in their theater space, The Broom Tree Theater. It opens tomorrow (Wednesday) night, and sounds like a lot of fun. Here’s the synopsis:

Once upon a time, Princess Gwendolyn became enchanted. In accordance with the rules, she lay asleep in a tower awaiting true love’s kiss. Ten years later, Prince George stumbles upon her tower and wakes her without too much trouble — but for some reason they can’t seem to leave the tower. Even Gwen’s bumbling fairy godmother, Bitsy (who has a bit of a temper) can’t manage to properly disenchant the princess. Amid magical hullaballoo and misplaced (and poorly executed) good intentions, this royal duo learns that happily ever after takes more than a kiss.

This also happens to be a new play and is directed by Cynthia Vazquez, Art House Astoria’s Office Manager. The show stars Jordan Coffey, Abigail Sparrow, James Swanson, and Olivia Washington. You’ll get to see it Wednesday and Thursday nights at 7 p.m., Friday and Saturday at 8 p.m., and a Saturday matinee at 3 p.m. Tickets are just $8! And kids are only $5. Such a deal for live theatre. Such a deal!

You can buy your tickets to The Princess of Bedlam ahead of time via Brown Paper Tickets, or pay at the door, too. $15 tickets on opening night also get you into the opening night party. Fun all around!
