"Into the woods, and who can tell what's waiting on the journey," sings the still-sanguine Little Red Ridinghood, early on in this brilliant Stephen Sondheim/James Lapine musical. And ain't that the truth? The characters Red meets amid the trees may be other familiar folk-tale celebrities — Cinderella, Rapunzel, Jack (of prodigious-beanstalk fame), etc. — but once their paths cross, all kinds of magic and mayhem come into play." - Oregon Arts Watch
Take a journey into the enchanted world of magic beans and moonlit nights, towering giants and handsome princes, and fates sealed (and unsealed). Familiar storybook figures such as Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Jack (with his beanstalk), and Rapunzel cross paths with the childless Baker and The Baker’s Wife on their quest to reverse the Witch’s curse on their fruitless family tree. But as the characters descend deeper into the forest, they find that getting what you wish for doesn’t always end happily ever after. Stephen Sondheim’s witty, powerful score and James Lapine’s imaginative, darkly humorous book combine to make the Tony Award-winning Into The Woods a favorite among musical lovers and a timeless masterpiece.
