How is this project different from past projects? The format is one of an acting troupe putting on a show, with much breaking of the third wall!

Favorite myth or fairytale (of all time)? Hansel and Gretel

Favorite mythological creature/character of all time and why is it your favorite? The Baba Yaga! A powerful, and wise woman who can be both evil and good.

What’s your super power? The willingness to act or appear ridiculous.

Why should audiences come to see the show?  Great actors, some laughs, some tears, pancakes!
