Ever After has been turned into a theatrical performance taking place at the Alliance Theatre through February 17.
I vividly remember 1998 when Ever After came out. I am a huge Drew Barrymore fan, but besides that, anytime a fairytale is turned into a play or movie I have to go see. And Ever After did NOT disappoint. I loved it so much I saw it twice in the theatre and bought the DVD when it came out.
Here’s a synopsis of Ever After:
Share the journey of Danielle de Barbarac as she risks everything to save a friend from an unjust fate, capturing the heart and imagination of a country along the way. With the help of none other than Leonardo da Vinci, Danielle must decide not only who she is, but what she’ll fight for, and how far she’ll go for love.
Do you have a favorite part of the film in Ever After? There are so many for me, it is hard to pick, but I did love the scene when Danielle is in the forest and fighting with the gypsies and the Prince thinks he is going to save her but gets trapped to. Remember what happened next? The gypsy leader said “You are welcome to take whatever you can carry.” What does she do? She hoists the prince over her shoulders, does a curtsy and turns to walk out of the forest, prince in tow.
