Have you ever had a wish? How far would you go to get your happy ending? On the surface, Into the Woods is a combination of Grimm Brother’s fairy tales, but this particular work is so much more. As you follow this production, it delves into the human spirit through stories of longing, lust, and loyalty. It is our job as a theater company to relate these fantastical tales with a modern day audience in order for us all to learn a few life lessons together.
The story follows a Baker and his wife who wish to have a child, Cinderella who wishes to attend the King’s 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 a Witch’s curse, the two set off on a journey to break the curse. Everyone’s wish is granted, but the consequences of their actions return to haunt them later with disastrous results.
James Lapine and Stephen Sondheim take everyone’s favorite storybook characters and bring them together for a timeless yet relevant piece and rare modern classic. The Tony Award-winning book and score are both enchanting and touching.
