Direct from London’s West End, Tall Stories' motley crew of storytelling musicians brings Oscar Wilde’s classic fairy tales to life in a fantastical journey told with original live music and a generous dash of comedy. “As warming as it is ingenious.” (The Times), characters from The Happy Prince and other stories spring to life as the pompous mayor, the petulant princess, and the love-sick student compete to become the new town statue.
