Storyline

This is a video adaptation of Yale Repertory Theatre's production of Paul Sills's improvisational adaptation of fairy tales by the Brothers Grimm. Played out in the adaptation are the stories "The Golden Goose," "The Blue Light," "The Clever Gretel," "The Goose Girl," and "The Bremen Town Musicians." Interspersed are interviews with the cast. This production grew, after many changes and additions, into a Broadway production in 1970, with a different cast and different stories. Written by Jim Beaver <jumblejim@prodigy.net>
