Fairy tales, even more than the plays of Shakespeare, open themselves up to endless reinvention. And Jackie Taylor's hilarious, musically sophisticated, hipper-than-hip show, "The Other Cinderella" -- first produced in 1976, and remounted (and continually tweaked and updated on an every-other-year basis ever since) -- is a prime example of how to breathe fresh, and happily irreverent life into a familiar story, Sun-Times' Hedy Weiss explains.

See pictures from the event and the full review from Weiss.
