Great for kids or kids at heart
4 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This presentation of Sleeping Beauty is delightfully amusing. I am a huge fan of Christopher Reeve and love Sleeping Beauty, so I absolutely HAD to see this when I heard about it. As always, Christopher Reeve gives a wonderful performance as the prince and works very well with the rest of the cast. Although she does not fit my picture of Sleeping Beauty, Ms. Peters is fabulous and entertaining. The costumes and scenery are very colorful and fairytale-ish, as they should be. There are several supporting characters who are very amusing, and you can tell that the entire cast must have had immense fun in this production. This is definitely geared towards young children but will no doubt delight parents as well.
