I haven't seen the musical with the same name, so I have no idea if it's the same story. Creating a new perspective on a classic story (or stories) can be fantastic (McKinley's Beauty) or ... not (Zel). This story is more its own, but is scattered with references to fables and fairy tales. Many of them aren't necessary and make the story feel somewhat contrived, as though the writer is showing off her cleverness.
