At the Olivier Theatre, Sleeping Beauty in a Very Dark Version
#Musical

Presenting Sleeping Beauty in a way you’ve never seen before is the musical Hex, an original revisitation at the Olivier Theatre, the largest of the three national theatres, from December 4th to January 22nd. Apparently there’s an “after that” to the “happily ever after” that we all know. Taking place after the Prince’s kiss wakes the beautiful princess, Hex tells the story from the point of view of the wicked fairy godmother, played by Rosalie Craig, inspired by the book by Tanya Ronder. A dark version, unforgettably electrifying, based on the popular story of the XVII Century. An exceptional cast sees Tamsin Carroll in the role Queenie and Michael Elcock as Bert, while Kat Ronney plays Rose. Along with them are Christopher Akrill, Delroy Atkinson, Esme Bacalla-Hayes and Madeline Charlemagne. Directing the musical, with costumes by Katrina Lindsay and choreography by Jade Hackett, is Rufus Norris, who is also the artistic director of the National Theatre.
