Mirror, mirror on the wall, what’s the most gruesome story of them all? It turns out those fairy tales didn’t go quite like the Disney movies suggest: Birds pecked out the eyes of Cinderella’s stepsisters, and Sleeping Beauty’s father raped her. That brings us to the other princess, Snow White, whom the Queen detested. In fact, she ordered the girl’s lungs and liver be delivered to her doorstep. How’s that for drama? For Catastrophic Theatre’s world premiere modern-day interpretation of this age-old story, director Greg Dean says, “[Snow White] lives with seven real-estate developers who make high-end baby food. They have a communal sexual setup there, and she is dissatisfied with everything. She’s experiencing an awakening.” Can’t wait to find out what happens next.

8 p.m. Saturday. Also 8 p.m. Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays. April 7 through May 6. The Catastrophic Theatre, 3400 Main. For information, call 713-522-2723 or visit Pay what you can; suggested price is $35.
