Video: Fairy Tale Roundtable with Experts from Theatre, Academia, and Literature

Once Upon a Blog recently brought my attention to this fascinating Fairy Tale Roundtable from 2007 with Anne Cattaneo (dramaturg), Mark Lamos (theatre director/ producer/ actor), Donna Jo Napoli (fiction writer), Roger Rahtz (psychiatrist), Maria Tatar (scholar), and Jack Zipes (scholar) wrestle with the question of How Fairy Tales Cast their Spell?

It is a marriage of my love of fairy tales and theater (especially Shakespeare)! They examine fairy tales from multiple disciplines, tell stories, and wrestle with the nature of tales through each lens.

This is an excellent discussion for anyone and worth the length!
