Into The Woods
“Thought provoking and full of high drama.”
– Wall Street Journal
Once upon a time, in a marvelous multiverse of musical fairy-tale heroes and villains...
The Witch, the Wolf, and the Giant have unleashed pandemonium on the kingdom. Little Red Riding Hood, Cinderella, Jack (of Beanstalk fame), and the Baker, assemble to avenge the evils dealt to the people.
But on their way into the woods, they get entrapped by Daydreams, ensnared by Desires, and enslaved by Wishes. And they discover that villains in real life can be more monstrous than those in fairy tales and that not everyone has a “happily ever after”.
The late, legendary Stephen Sondheim’s spellbinding music and words combine with James Lapine’s wild and witty script in this ingenious, subversive mashup of our most beloved fairy stories.
Full of heart, humour, and honesty, this magical musical has much to teach us about growing up, growing old, love and marriage, parents and children, good and evil, life and death.
Whether you’re 10 or 110, we promise you a journey into the woods you will not soon forget.
