A fresh spin on several Brothers Grimm fairy tales, Into the Woods interweaves and re-imagines the stories of a number of beloved characters to examine whether "happily ever after" is really even possible. Unable to bear children, a baker and his wife are lured into completing a number of tasks by a witch who promises to grant them their wish. During their journey, they encounter Little Red Riding Hood, Rapunzel, Cinderella and Jack and the Beanstalk. With music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and book by James Lapine, the original Broadway run won critical praise and numerous awards. The cast recording, which includes "Children Will Listen," "Giants in the Sky" and "No One Is Alone," took home a Grammy. It's set to get the Hollywood movie treatment this year in a film starring Johnny Depp and Meryl Streep. Learn More

American writer John Steinbeck won the Pulitzer Prize, the National Book Award, and the Nobel Prize for combining “sympathetic humor and keen social perception.”
Longtime friends Lennie and George cling to each other as they’re driven from job to job by simple-minded Lennie’s inability to fit society’s norms. George needs Lennie’s friendship as much as Lennie needs George to look out for him - “a guy goes nuts if he ain’t got nobody.”
But just as their humble dreams seem to float within reach, “the best laid schemes o’mice an’ men” begin to go hopelessly awry.
