The Brothers Grimm hit the stage with an epic fairytale about wishes, family and the choices we make. The stroy follows a Baker and his wife who wish to have a child, Cinderella who wishes to attend the King's Festival, and Jack who wishes his cow would give milk. When the Baker and his wife learn that they cannot have a child because of a Witch's curse, the two set off on a journey to break it. Everyone's wish is granted, but consequences of their actions return to haunt them later with disastrous results. They learn the hard way that happily ever after isn't always so happy after all.
