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
Humorous tunes include “Something Funny’s Going On”, “Good To Be Alive”, “Rita’s Confession”, “Fancy Meeting You Here” and “Times Like This.”
Lucky Stiff is a difficult musical to describe the best I can do when asked is say, “imagine a story where Weekend at Bernie’s meets Monty Python, toss in some elements of The Godfather and Feydeau-like farce, and then add a score by Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty.”
Confused? Don’t be. Once you see it, you’ll see what I mean. Despite the somewhat macabre premise, Lucky Stiff is enchanting a fast paced romp, a timeless story about falling in love, and a gentle reminder that we can’t live life fully unless we take a chance once in a while. Luck must be seized when the opportunity presents itself. Life is a gamble. It involves risk, and sometimes comes with pain and hurt but to “win big,” you must be willing to take a chance. And, when you do, your life can change for the better!
