Misogyny, check. Xenophobia, check. Traitorous sycophants, check. King Xerxes of Persia sponsors a beauty pageant in order to replace his stubborn wife with a submissive one. The mysterious Esther wins, becoming an undercover bride whose secret mission is to prevent genocide. In risking her life, she inspires the Jewish festival of Purim. Both comedic and poignant, this royal reality show features soul scorching ballads and farcical takes on the adventures of a biblical icon.
