The Legend of Little Bad:Not Her Father’s Fairy Tale


by Wendy Gennaula • August 3, 2008 • Tommy (who is 10) was concerned that he might be too old for “The Legend of Little Bad: Not Her Father’s Fairy Tale”. Not to worry. The clever script kept him entertained for the full forty-five minutes.

Good To Momma is the blog of Wendy Gennaula, one of five bloggers covering the Minnesota Fringe Festival for the Daily Planet.

Closer to the spirit of the original Grimm’s fairy tales than the Disney versions, this fractured fairy tale picks up the story with Little Pink (Red Riding Hood’s daughter) and Woofie (the big bad wolf’s daughter) running off into the forest to change their story . Little Pink doesn’t want to be naive and stupid and Woofie doesn’t want to have to eat her friends. Archie, one of the three little piggies, tags along. Silliness ensues. The children in the audience enjoyed being invited to participate. Even the adults had a howling good time.

Wendy Gennaula is a singer and actress in the Twin Cities. She is the mother of two extraordinary Fringelings.
