Not The Princesses You Remember

Hello Beautiful Thinkers,

My friend and I went to see Disenchanted last week while it was in town. It is a musical about the fairytale princesses and telling the “truths” of their stories. The songs are geared towards an adult audience and these are not the version of the princesses you might remember from Disney movies. Covering subjects like racial stereotypes, body image issues, and gender roles, the songs are wickedly funny. It was a great time. I found a performance “All I Wanna Do Is Eat” on YouTube and posted it below to give you all a taste. The musical definitely makes you question what princess movies teach our children. Write a scene in which you create the princess that you’d want to learn from.

Keep Dreaming Beautiful Thinkers,

The Boy In The Heart Shades
