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

People who love musicals, and even those who hate them, will enjoy this clever and funny play! I loved it, and could see why it won 5 Tony Awards on Broadway.
My seat turned out to be even a few rows closer than the designated range, maybe because of my Red Carpet membership :-)
I know this musical was written without an intermission (you'll find out why when you watch it), but after an hour and a half I had to answer the call of nature. When I returned I sat on a side, which was less obstructed and offered more elbow room. The play should have a brief intermission.
Very nice nostalgic old theater, with a lot of legroom. The stage doesn't seem to be very high, so even shorter people in front of you are a little bit of a hindrance, but I'd heartily recommend this play, and 3D Theatrical Productions in general, as you get to experience a high quality production, with live orchestra, at a great Goldstar value!
Quotes & Highlights
Featuring Sally Struthers as Mrs. Tottendale
The Drowsy Chaperone won the 2006 Tony Award for Best Book of a Musical and Best Original Score.
A rare combination of unprecedented originality and blinding talent, The Drowsy Chaperone boldly addresses a great unspoken desire in all of our hearts: to be entertained. If you’ve ever sat in a dark theatre and thought, “Dear Lord in heaven, please let it be good,” this is the show for you!
It all begins when a die-hard musical-theater fan plays his favorite cast album on his turntable, and the musical literally bursts to life in his living room, telling the rambunctious tale of a brazen Broadway starlet trying to find, and keep, her true love.
