An Exhibition by SuperMonster市 City!

As the last battles of World War II waned, a new conflict was brewing between the world’s two new superpowers, the United States and the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. Fought through the veil of rhetoric, secrets, and the race to outer space, the Cold War infiltrated every aspect of life, permeating both American and USSR popular culture. Toys, games, comics, and popular media quickly reflected the espionage, space exploration, and growing political tension of the real world.

Music and Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim. 
Book by James Lapine

James Lapine and Stephen Sondheim take everyone's favorite storybook characters and bring them together for a timeless, yet relevant, piece... and a rare modern classic. The Tony Award-winning book and score are both enchanting and touching.

The story follows a Baker and his wife, who wish to have a child; Cinderella, who wishes to attend the King's Festival; and Jack, who wishes his cow would give milk. When the Baker and his wife learn that they cannot have a child because of a Witch's curse, the two set off on a journey to break the curse. This dark, musical comedy has a few twists and turns as we learn of the consequences of wishes coming true.
