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
Quotes & Highlights
- "Funny and poignant...incredibly open-hearted and generous" —<em>New York Post </em>
Eleven-year-old Emory yearns to flee the coop — literally. Gay, lonely, and trapped on the rural chicken farm run by his emphysema-addled, chain-smoking Nanna—who's trying to "cure" him of his effeminacy, Emory dreams of running away to the city to achieve showbiz stardom. But before he can go, he must save his beloved chicken friend Linda from Nanna's processing machine and try to connect with the bully who lives down the road. In this hilarious yet moving new show directed by Desdemona Chiang (who helmed the Impact smash hit Ching Chong Chinaman), playwright Joshua Conkel has conjured a brilliantly cracked and dangerous world filled with innocence, love, and ribald poultry.
