A fresh spin on several Brothers Grimm fairy tales, Into the Woods interweaves and reimagines 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
Irving Berlin once summed up the pair’s achievement with his famous rhyming maxim: “Tuneful and tasty, schmaltzy and smart—-music by Rodgers, lyrics by Hart.” The Rodgers/Hart partnership resulted in the scores for 30 stage musicals and nine films. (Rodgers, of course, later worked with lyricist Oscar Hammerstein.)
“Beguiled Again” is a cleverly compiled revue of songs and vignettes. One sequence evokes the frenzy of the “Hollywood Machine” with the studio employees racing from one picture to another and a most unlikely starlet who gets “discovered.” A live radio show is presented replete with the slick host, trio of songbirds, and overwrought stage manager who provides all the sound effects including a tap number with the shoes on his hands.
The show’s limited Southern California tour is produced by Broadway singer/actress Teri Ralston, who also performs in the revue. Ralston was featured in the original Broadway casts of Stephen Sondheim’s “Company” and “A Little Night Music.”
