A baker and his wife are desperate for a child. But to get what they want they’re going to need to go on a perilous journey.
Along the way they’ll meet Jack and his Beanstalk, Cinderella, Rapunzel, Little Red Riding Hood and host of other characters all wishing for something in their lives to change. But even after their wishes are granted, the consequences of their actions come back to haunt them and they are forced to ask if life was ever as simple as they once thought.
Distorting, combining and remixing a series of well-known fairy tales. Into The Woods is a dazzling, witty and thought-provoking musical from Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine that reminds us that the stories we tell are fallible and that we have to be careful how we tell them.
Original Broadway production by Heidi Landesman, Rocco Landesman, Rick Steiner, M. Anthony Fisher, Frederic H. Mayerson, Jujamcyn Theaters. Originally produced by the Old Globe Theater, San Diego, CA.
