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

A very engaging story of a modern family with 2 lesbian women, a son with probably high functioning Asperger's, and a visiting photographer who specializes in taking pictures of nude women and pre-pubescent girls. Needless to say, the Body Awareness week being led by the feminist college professor does not go as planned with the artist's presence on campus and in their home. Excellent acting, clever use of small stage and props, serious modern topics with plenty of comedic moments dealing with intimate and potential relationships and views by ourselves and others of our bodies. Highly recommend it to all!
Body Awareness is being produced as the fully-staged anchor production in The Global Age Project (GAP), an Aurora Theatre Company initiative that encourages playwrights and directors to explore life in the 21st century and beyond. In addition, several new plays dealing with global age concerns will be chosen from an international pool of playwrights and presented in a series of developmental readings during the run of Body Awareness.
