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
Reviews & Ratings
The stage musical adaptation of the Charles Dickens classic returns to Fullerton for the first time in 35 years. The heartbreaking story of the little orphan boy, Oliver, who joins a boys’ gang of pickpockets, led by the Artful Dodger, tugs at heartstrings and engages the audience with its pathos and drama. The show delights with outstanding musical numbers including “Food, Glorious Food,” “I’d Do Anything,” “Where Is Love?”, “Consider Yourself,” “As Long As He Needs Me,” “Who Will Buy?” and “Reviewing the Situation.”
Music, lyrics and book by Lionel Bart
Starring Anthony Skillman (Les Miserables national tour), Broadway veteran actor David Allen Jones, Broadway star Richard Kinsey and Bets Malone (_42nd Street _national tour).
