World premiere of 'Bliss' in Seattle will feature 'Sex In the City' star Mario Cantone

Everyone knows Mario Cantone as Charlotte York's fast-talking, Italian-stallion GBF Anthony, who marries Carrie Bradshaw's mild-mannered GBF Stanford, RIGHT?

Well, Mario Cantone (Anthony) will star in the world premiere production of Bliss, an "original musical fantasy that flips the traditional princess narrative upside down."

Here's a further synopsis:

Welcome to the Deep Dark Forest, a mysterious place where fairy godfathers await to grant your every wish—“happily ever after” guaranteed. Or is it? Bliss is an electrifying new musical that tears up the rules on happy endings. In this addictive fractured fairytale created at The 5th, four wildly distinctive royal sisters sneak out of their castle and discover an intoxicating world of fancy balls and dreamy princes—and a burning desire to be at the center of it all. In a world that demands they fit in, it will take a sister’s love to remind them to stand out. Together they discover that chasing their bliss means leaving expectations behind.

You can see the Tony-award nominated and Sex and the City star, Mario Cantone, in "Bliss" playing at the 5th Avenue Theatre from January 31 to February 23, 2020. Tickets are on sale now at
