With jokes that kids will laugh at and adults will knowingly smile at, this audio production has something for everyone as a musical rendering of “Rumpelstiltskin.” When Jane's dad spins a tale about her abilities, Rumpelstiltskin makes sure it ends up the in the king's ears, which lands her in the castle, needing to spin hay into gold to save the kingdom, which is in dire financial straits due to the king’s materialistic sisters. Jim Dale takes the lead as narrator with a wizened voice that guides listeners through the real story behind Rumpelstiltskin. The other members of the cast perform the rest of the story’s roles. Vocal performances brim with the energy of a live performance, and the music is catchy. L.E. 2019 Audies Winner © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2018]
