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

Very enjoyable. The cast was fantastic. Since it's a smaller venue, they invited the audience up to the stage during intermission to view the set up close and take a look at "Old Deuteuronomy", who sat on stage through intermission as we filed past him and checked out his make-up and costume up close! I would definitely recommend this event.

Winner of 7 Tony Awards including Best Musical, Score and Book; Outer Critics Circle Award for Best Musical; Olivier Award for Best Musical and the Evening Standard Award for Best Musical, FCLO is pleased to bring “Cats” starring Mari Gutzi as Grizabella from the National Tour and two performers from the Broadway show to Plummer Auditorium. Based on Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats, a collection of poems by T.S. Eliot, Cats revolves around the antics of such feline characters as Old Deuteronomy, Jennyanydots, Mr. Mistoffelees, Rum Tum Tugger, Skimbleshanks, Griddlebone, and Grizabella who sings the hit song “Memory.”
Originally produced at the New London Theatre on May 11, 1981, Cats began its New York run at the Winter Garden Theatre on October 7, 1982. The production featured Betty Buckley (Grizabella), and like the London production which preceded it, the New York version of Cats dazzled audiences with its imaginative spectacle and story-telling flare. Twenty-five years since it’s West End debut, Cats continues to delight audiences throughout the world.
Hailed by critics as “Purrfection..one of the most imaginative musicals of the century!”, “Heartstopping entertainment.. it is that rarity that appeals to adults and children” and “A triumphant piece of musical theater..among the most exhilarating and innovative musicals ever staged.
