The Roast of Cinderella Member Picks New Review (Theater and Comedy) The Short List (Theater) Closing (Theater and Galleries)

When: Fridays-Sundays. Continues through April 27 2013

Cinderella is the latest victim of the League of Miscreants, which specializes in roasting fictional characters, Friars Club style. In this edition a gang of Disney princesses, plus Alice (of Wonderland fame) and Leia from Star Wars gather to mock their old pal Cindy for being an uptight prude. Naturally they can't resist picking on one another, either. If you've ever looked at Disney from the perspective of a 12-year-old who's just discovered porn, you'll know there's a lot to mock—though maybe not enough to fill the hour that's allotted by Gorilla Tango Theatre. The alcohol flows freely, however, some in the form of complimentary shots of tequila. The League of Miscreants may be rude and crude, but they understand that a well-lubricated audience is a happy audience. —Aimee Levitt
