The plot of the story remains the same – three pigs build homes out of questionable material, while a wolf attempts to take their life. As a child that story was always one of my favorites. Though, I do admit, remakes were always better than the original because the author had to work hard to keep the integrity of the tale intact, while still changing it. John Scieszka did it quite successfully in, The True Story of Three Little Pigs, by creating a sympathetic wolf and some very rude piggies. In George Stiles’ and Anthony Drewe’s The Three Little Pigs: A Very Curly Musical Tail, our classic heroes take to the stage in a coming of age adaptation of the story. No, no. Not coming of age like Holden Caulfield (though wouldn’t that be interesting?), but more like finding out what it means to grow up, become independent, and stake your own claim in the world – not only for yourself, but for your family as well.
