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

It has been 58 years since the story of Anna Leonowens and the King of Siam first graced the Broadway stage, and the beauty of this richly textured tale is as uplifting today as it was then.
The dazzling score include favorites: I Whistle a Happy Tune, Hello, Young Lovers, Getting To Know You, I Have Dreamed and Shall We Dance? The incomparable Jerome Robbins ballet, “The Small House of Uncle Thomas” is truly one of the marvels of musical theatre.
