Description

When a Baker and his Wife learn the Witch next door has cursed them with childlessness, they embark on a quest to break the spell. Along the way, they swindle, lie, and steal from Cinderella, Little Red, Rapunzel, and Jack of beanstalk fame.

The bewitchingly beautiful Sondheim score features the well-known songs “Children Will Listen” and “No One is Alone.”
