An evil stepmother and a sad princess: Just another Saturday morning in Durham

Posted by on Sat, Apr 26, 2014 at 1:55 PM

"I went to the Durham Farmers Market this morning," I once commented to my husband after a particularly colorful trip. "It was very Portlandia."

"Really?" he replied. "Was anyone nursing a python?" 

Even though I occasionally poke fun at the Saturday Durham Farmers Market for bordering on hipster preciousness, it's one of my favorite rituals of the Bull City—and the best place to people watch.

This morning, among the baskets of strawberries and field loads of greens, the Legacy Repertory Company in Durham was plugging its performance of Cinderella at the Carolina Theatre on Saturday, May 10. 

The evil stepmother with the large Adam's apple was accompanied by Bella the dog, while their entourage offered passersby princess crowns. Some kids declined, and this young girl seemed conflicted about her ascent to royalty.
