Lapine and Stephen Sondheim take everyone's favorite storybook
characters and bring them together for a timeless, yet relevant,
piece... and a rare modern classic. The Tony Award-winning book and
score are both enchanting and touching.
Follow the topsy-turvy journeys of familiar fairytale figures who seek to fulfil their deepest wishes: the Baker and his Wife, who are longing to have a child; Cinderella, who yearns to go to the ball; and Jack, who needs his cow Milky-White to produce some milk. Within the magical forest, we also encounter Little Red, a seductive Wolf, Rapunzel, a couple of Princes, a Witch (naturally), and more!
Into the Woods boldly moves beyond the anticipated happily-ever-after endings of these storybook characters, daring to explore the aftermath of getting what you want. What would you wish for? And if that wish was granted, what consequences would you be willing to accept in return?
