About this event

James Lapine and Stephen Sondheim take your favorite storybook characters and bring them together for a timeless, yet relevant, piece. A rare modern classic. The Tony Award-winning book and score are both enchanting and touching. The story follows a Baker and his wife, who wish to have a child, Cinderella, who wishes to attend the royal Festival, and Jack, who wishes his cow would give milk. When the Baker and his wife learn that they cannot have a child because of the curse of a witch, the two set off on a journey to break the curse. Every wish is granted, but the consequences of their actions return to haunt them later with disastrous results. Into the Woods is a musically sophisticated show with the opportunity to feature actors adept at dark comedy. Designers will especially enjoy highlighting the fantastical elements of this magical word.
