Musical Review: Once Upon a Mattress

Actors Tobin Grendzyndski, Lily Dowler and Mattie Vermilya.

This was, overall, a surprisingly good musical. When I first heard that it was based on a children’s story, I thought it would be boring or unfunny.

I could not have been more wrong, though.

This musical featured great musicians, and the comedy of the musical was rather enjoyable. The actors enjoyed what they were doing.

My favorite scene was the nightingale scene near the end — I just found it really humorous.

Overall, I think the actors and crew involved, whether it’s tech or lighting or anything else, did a fantastic job. If this musical were put on again, I would definitely watch it again.
