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

Excellent production of a very relevant 100 plus year old play. The actors were especially good. The production is slow but then again, that's Ibsen. Second time I’ve seen the play. The last time was in London with Paul Scofield and I believe Vanessa Redgrave.
Home now, after serving time in prison for embezzlement, Borkman has spent the last eight years pacing alone and making plans for a comeback. Meanwhile, his estranged wife and her twin sister vie for the loyalty of the prized son.
Directed by former Artistic Director Barbara Oliver and featuring James Carpenter (The Master Builder) and Karen Grassle (Caroline “Ma” Ingalls from TV’s popular series Little House on the Prairie).
