Into the Woods
Music by Stephen Sondheim, Book by James Lapine.
Unanimously lauded by critics and extended twice on Broadway, the Tony Award-winning musical by Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine works its considerable magic through exhilarating rhymes and a gorgeous score. This modern twist on the Brothers Grimm brings together Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Jack (of beanstalk fame), a Baker, his Wife and a dancing cow. The beloved storybook characters take on startling complexity as they discover that wishes come with a price. Witches, wolves, giants and mysterious strangers force the heroes to face the music and their future in a world where things aren’t as simple as “happily ever after.”
