Tales... of the Expected

Though the title is meant to be ironic, the audience merely gets a trio of slightly fractured fairy tales that never get far enough from the sources to be really fun. By this time, we've all seen twists on Sleeping Beauty and Jack and the Beanstalk, and a middle section about some pirate-like sailors onboard a car ferry never really launches beyond the obvious "arghhs." A talented cast, under the able direction of Peter Moore, makes for some good moments, but it's hard not to be disappointed by the latest piece by the talented Hoptman.
