Snow White and the Seven Mullets

Fairy tales have been fertile grounds for creative inspiration of late. Films and television series loosely based in the myths of yesteryear abound. And now, the fairies are taking to the stage in Snow White Trash. In this reimagining of the tale of the ill-fated pasty princess, Snow finds herself surrounded not by cherubic dwarfs but by rednecks who are trying to marry her off to the prince. Unfortunately, the prince is as gay as a Wilton Manors parade and wants to get hitched just to secure his inheritance. And of course, the evil queen is still out to get her. Running at the Empire Theater (1140 N. Flagler Drive, Fort Lauderdale) through the 28th, this Infinite Abyss original production is certainly not the fairy tale that melanin-challenged little girls everywhere dream of. Catch it Friday for the preview and pay only $15. Tickets cost $25 for regular shows. Showtimes are 8 p.m. Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. Group and student rates are available. Call 954-678-1496, or visit infinite-abyss.com for tickets and for more information.
Thursdays-Saturdays. Starts: Jan. 6. Continues through Jan. 28, 2012
KEEP NEW TIMES BROWARD-PALM BEACH FREE... Since we started New Times Broward-Palm Beach, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of South Florida, and we'd like to keep it that way.

You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
Rebecca McBane is the arts and culture/food editor for New Times Broward-Palm Beach. She began her journalism career at the Sun Sentinel's community newspaper offshoot, Forum Publishing Group, where she worked as the editorial assistant and wrote monthly features as well as the weekly library and literature column, "Shelf Life." After a brief stint bumming around London's East End (for no conceivable reason, according to her poor mother), she returned to real life and South Florida to start at New Times as the editorial assistant in 2009. A native Floridian, Rebecca avoids the sun and beach at all costs and can most often be found in a well-air-conditioned space with the glow of a laptop on her face.
