About the Show:
“With fairy tale shows such as “Wicked” and “Into the Woods” being Broadway and touring hits, and the Noir style being popular both as a movie and play genre, our concept highlights what makes both genres special.
It brings a gritty theme into what would normally be the fantasy world of the fairy tale. What would the story of Humpty Dumpty look like if it were not an accident but a murder? How about the domestic like of “Peter, Peter, Pumpkin Eater” who sequestered his wife in some isolated place because their relationship went sour? Or what was the real reason the Wolf kept destroying the Pigs’ homes?”
About the Festival:
Each year the Hideout Theatre in Austin assembles a full weekend of improvised one-act plays. The schedule is packed with The Hideout’s own repertoire of shows, exciting new shows from other theaters in Austin, and special out-of-town guest troupes.
