Once Upon a Mattress Broadway Tickets On Sale Soon

Fairytales get a hilarious twist this year as iconic comedy musical Once Upon a Mattress returns to Broadway for the first time in almost 30 years. Following its record-breaking run Off-Broadway, two-time Tony Award winner Sutton Foster reprises her “perfectly goofy” (The New York Times) performance as Princess Winnifred the Woebegone at the Hudson Theatre in this raucous spin on a classic story.

About Once Upon a Mattress

Long ago in a far-away kingdom, Queen Aggravain declares that no one can marry until her son, Prince Dauntless, finds a bride. Faced with seemingly impossible tasks, each suitor is turned away… until Princess Winnifred the Woebegone turns up! Can she charm, dance and delight her way to the altar?

Once Upon a Mattress is a rollicking musical adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen’s The Princess and the Pea, brimming with joyful songs (“Shy”, “In a Little While”), side-splitting humor and an unforgettable rise to the top (of a pile of mattresses).

Sutton Foster in Once Upon a Mattress

Tony Award-winning Broadway star Sutton Foster plays eccentric Princess Winnifred, reprising her laugh-out-loud performance from the musical’s run at New York City Center Encores!. Known for her roles in Thoroughly Modern Millie, Anything Goes, Sweeney Todd and The Music Man, Foster is a riot on- as she “seizes the spotlight from the second she climbs onstage” (WhatsOnStage).

The Hit Comedy, Back On Broadway!

Once Upon a Mattress debuted on Broadway in 1996 where it was nominated for Best New Musical and Best Performance by a Leading Actress in a Musical at the Tonys. Mary Rodgers, Marshall Barer, Jay Thompson, and Dean Fuller’s show gets a fresh adaptation from Amy Sherman-Palladino (The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel) that ran Off-Broadway at New York City Center. Fear not, however - this New York Times Critics Pick production features all the quirky characters, high-spirited shenanigans and jokes that make the show an audience favorite.
