The Emperor's New Clothes (Prince Street Players Version)! Designed specifically for young audiences, this version is a charming exploration of the dangers of vanity. Featuring a host of hilarious characters, including a brassy, tap-dancing, bugle-playing Empress.Two con men, Mr. Stitch and Mr. Sew, wreak havoc at Wits Ends Palace when they present the Emperor with a special gift: an exquisitely beautiful "magic" suit of clothes, invisible to all but the wisest of men. The dangers of vanity are hilariously addressed with a host of delightful characters as Emperor Maxmilian the Most dons his most expensive, least visible outfit. It looks like it's up to the lowliest of the Emperor's staff, Chester the Jester, to imbue His Highness with some common sense.
