Returning to this theater is a musical comedy based on Hans Christian Andersen’s "The Princess and the Pea", a fairy tale with wit, sophistication and human feeling. Set in the 15th century and carried on a wave of wonderful songs, romantic and melodic, this rollicking spin on the familiar classic of royal courtship and comeuppance introduced a new Broadway star by the name of Carol Burnett when it opened in 1959. In 1965, it was shown on TV as a special and a new production of this delightful musical opened on Broadway in December, 1996, starring Sarah Jessica Parker. It boasts a good score and is a show for the entire family. Memorable songs include “Shy,” “In A Little While,” “Happily Ever After,” “Sensitivity” and “Normandy."
