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

“Legitimate physical dexterity and bad boy clowning for 60 some minutes of one-ring (half-ring?) entertainment.” Pittsburgh Tribune-Review
Canadian duo Jean Saucier and Laurence Smythe offer an evening that has pleased family audiences all over the world, including at numerous Canadian festivals, Las Vegas and tours to Japan, France and Hungary. Both artists performed with the prestigious Cirque du Soleil before creating their own two-man circus in 1998.
For most of the performance, rubber-faced Smythe is a prankster in the mold of Red Skelton, Charlie Chaplin and Robin Williams, a bumbling but lovable assistant to the more serious equilibrist Saucier, who is a master of classical circus skills including sword balancing, unicycle tricks, magic and juggling. The pair creates a fast-paced revue format that has been described as a cartoon-like action adventure performed live on stage.
