+ Tall tales
The Play Readers of the Asolo Repertory Theatre Guild were in fine form as they entertained at the Art Association of Palm-Aire’s opening winter luncheon with “Fractured Fairy Tales.” Zany social-commentary versions of Grimm’s tales — What if Chicken Little was less concerned with the sky falling than with whom to sue? What if the Big Bad Wolf was a nasty businessman trying to put three honest competitors out of business? And, what if Red Riding Hood was a resourceful animal lover who didn’t need the Woodsman to save her and Grandma from the wolf? — kept the audience laughing and served as a prelude to lunch.
