Book, Music & Lyrics by Dennis T. Giacino

Full Length Musical, Comedy, Contemporary

Poisoned apples. Glass slippers. Who needs 'em?!
Not Snow White and her posse of disenchanted princesses in the hilarious hit musical that's anything but Grimm. The original storybook heroines are none-too-happy with the way they've been portrayed in today's pop culture so they've tossed their tiaras and have come to life to set the record straight. Forget the princesses you think you know -- these royal renegades are here to comically belt out the truth.

John Misto
Full Length Play, Drama, Australian, 1960s, 1950s
Cast: 1M, 2F
In John Misto's hilarious new play, Lip Service, Australian cosmetics tycoon, Helena Rubinstein, is locked in a power struggle with rivals Elizabeth Arden and Revlon. When Helena hires a battle-hardened war-veteran as a personal assistant, her life is turned upside down. Inspired by real events, Lip Service is a bright new comedy where the nails are painted and the gloves are off. Yet when the lipstick bleeds and the makeup fades, what is there left to hide behind?
