Broadway's Into the Woods combines a Tony-winning score by Stephen Sondheim with the iconic stories of Little Red Riding Hood, Cinderella, Rapunzel and Jack (the giant killer). The result cleverly turns the fairy tale world on its head to deliver a deeper message about the nature of greed and whether "happily ever after" is 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 their wish in return, sending them on an eventful journey where they encounter several familiar characters. With music and lyrics by Sondheim and a book by James Lapine, this show's original Broadway run won critical praise and numerous awards, including a trio of Tonys. The cast recording, which includes "Children Will Listen," "Giants in the Sky" and "No One Is Alone," took home a Grammy, and a movie is now in production for a Christmas 2014 release with an all-star cast that includes Meryl Streep, Johnny Depp, Emily Blunt, Anna Kendrick and more.

Audience kept to our feet the minute Avenue Q ended - the most enthusiastic standing ovation I've been part of in a while. Avenue Q at the Lyric Stage Company runs for another month. Bostonians, you don't want to miss this one.

It was amusing, but not that intelligent. We brought our 3 teenagers and while they enjoy some level of crude humor, the explicit puppet sex got a bit excessive. I still recommend this for adults, but leave the teens at home and you'll enjoy it more.

Part flesh (humans), part felt (puppets), and packed with heart (universal), Avenue Q is a laugh-out-loud musical that tells the timeless story of a recent college grad named Princeton who moves into a shabby New York apartment all the way out on Avenue Q. There, he meets the girl next door, a Republican, an internet sexpert, and Gary Coleman (need we say more?), along with other colorful types who help Princeton finally discover his purpose in life. Warning: contains adult language and puppet nudity. Not for the kiddies, but your teenagers will think you’re cool if you take them!
Winner of the Tony Awards for Best Musical, Best Score and Best Book.
This show contains strong language, adult themes and partial puppet nudity.
