*** Recommended *** Someone took the Big, Bad Wolf! That’s right, he’s inexplicably disappeared from fairy tales like “The Three Little Pigs” or “Little Red Riding Hood”. How and why could this happen? In “Mr. and Mrs. Pennyworth”, the holiday production at Lookingglass Theatre, the title characters, traveling story-tellers, put themselves in their own stories to try to figure all it out. Unfortunately, “Mr. and Mrs. Pennyworth” desperately needs a consistent story. 3 Spotlights
