It takes a brave soul to put one’s dating mishaps out there for all the world to see — and judge. But comedian Lauren Krass is doing just that with her one-woman musical Princess Charming about an eternal optimist who is coming to terms with the fact that her soulmate may never find her. “The show is technically fictional, but it is inspired by my own life’s events in regards to romance. I think they call that semi-autobiographical,” Krass says. “The opening of the show depicts myself at seven-years-old casting my family members — all to be played by me, of course — in a fairy tale play I wrote for my seventh birthday. That ridiculous fact is 100 percent truth. I even included an actual song I wrote as a child, so I guess you could say I’ve been writing this show since I was seven.” And while some of the more adult material takes some creative licensing with her past, Krass wanted to show an honest journey of a young woman who thinks being a girlfriend is the be-all and end-all to life. “It’s definitely something I think young women and men in today’s society of ‘matrimania’ are going to relate to,” she adds. For Princess Charming, Krass teamed up with musician Kelly Eldridge to help her compose the songs. And the play’s directed by former Charlestonian John R. Brennen from Off Broadway’s Banana Monologues, who has also had a big hand in creating the show. And with song titles that include “Someday I’ll Find the Right D-Bag for Me” and “The Accidental Fluffer,” we have a good feeling that the comedian will pull through with the laughs.
