"Fairy tales can come true, it can happen to you”—song lyrics to you and me, but something else entirely to Emma Swan (Jennifer Morrison), a Boston-based bail bondsperson who discovers on her twenty-eighth birthday that she is, as improbable as it may seem, the daughter of Snow White (Ginnifer Goodwin) and Prince Charming (Josh Dallas). She is expected to free the residents of Storybrooke , Maine , from a curse by the Evil Queen (Lana Parrilla) that has left them frozen in time and unaware of their true identities as, well, fairy-tale characters. Creators Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis are veterans of Lost, whose DNA is evident in this ABC series as it shifts between parallel storylines, and in the epic battle between good and evil.

Please note: Events and panelists are subject to change. 

PARKING:  There are a number of independent parking lots surrounding the theatre.

Underground parking is available at the Nibblers Building (on Gale, north of Wilshire,) or at the Flynt Communications building (on Hamilton , south of Wilshire.) The Medical Center , east of the theatre, maintains an outdoor pay lot.   Parking fees are $10.00 - $15.00.

NOTE:  Most of the surrounding streets are restricted to permit only parking and are heavily patrolled by parking enforcement.

THE GOOD:  The producers not only allowed audience members to see Sunday night’s episode before it aired, but they also gave us a ten minute sneak peak of next week’s episode; which was a definite high point to a somewhat lackluster night.

THE BAD:  Unfortunately, this ensemble cast features no really big names or personalities and the night suffered for it.

The producers, who also produced the long running television series LOST, also seemed a little lost; especially, when the moderator backed them into a corner about upcoming confidential storylines.

SPOILER ALERT:  The mysterious man featured in the last few episodes may be “Henry” as an adult…

THE UGLY:  This show sold more seats that AMERICAN HORROR STORY…

MY SCORE:  *****

(5 OUT OF 5 STARS)
