Theatre Review: ‘Rumpelstiltskin’ at Imagination Stage

Rumpelstiltskin is a scary fairytale about a selfish King, a desperate father, a lonely young girl who must fight for her life and a mean and menacing goblin. Or at least, that’s the version originally written by the brothers Wilhelm and Jacob Grimm in the 1800s. However, Imagination Stage’s version of Rumpelstiltskin, directed by Janet Stanford, is played out on stage like a quiet folk story, recited by a babbling brook.

The story begins with a recently widowed Miller and his beautiful daughter. The Miller wants more for his daughter then their current life of poverty, so when the Miller has the opportunity to meet the King, he tells the King that his daughter can spin hay into gold. The King takes the daughter and puts her in a room full of hay and orders her to spin it all into gold or she will be killed in the morning.
